Almost captures my thoughts exactly

Originally shared by Wolfram Rittmeyer{.reshare-attribution}So what happened? Why is agile now about stand-ups, retrospectives, two-week iterations and planning poker?\ \ A valid question!\ \ Please read the full post, it’s worth your time.\ \ Some more nuggets:\ The core problem is that non-technical managers of software projects will always fail, or at best be counter productive, whatever the methodology.\ \ Because creating good software is so much about technical decisions and so little about management process, I believe that there is very little place for non-technical managers in any software development organisation.\ \ with no understanding of software engineering, it [agile methodologies, W.R.] merely becomes a set of meaningless rituals that are mostly impediments and distractions to creating successful software.\ \ Alas, no one will listen - again :-({.link-embed}
