In this item we continue our examination of various Agile methodology ideas and ask whether they are valid or whether they are in fact, industry myths. Do agile methodologies promote the idea that process is unimportant?
I have occasionally seen expressed the view that Agile methods avoid process in favor of skilled people doing whatever it takes to get the job done. The Agile Manifesto does say that people should be put before process, but it doesn’t say process is unimportant. It is process that dictates the procedures that make a project Agile. Without the process, the project would be chaos. So, let’s call this idea a myth right away, and spend our time looking at examples that show strong Agile process.
These are just a few examples which demonstrate that while Agile methods might be light on process, the processes they do have are well defined and critical to their success.
