To paraphrase the advertising legend Bob Hoffman: ‘Just when you thought that if evangelists for Agile were to generate one more ounce of bullshit, the entire fucking solar system would explode, what do they do? Exceed expectations.’
And how do they do that? Ladies and gentlemen, I’ll let you into a little secret about this Agile@Scale stuff, including a brief tour of some of the miscellaneous, spiced-up and vainglorious crap-on-the-side that accompanies it.

LAUGHING@BIGDATA – THE GREATEST DATA STORY EVER TOLD!
My new ebook about Agile, AI, data, deep learning, IT and much more.
Highly polemic, contrarian and insightful. It informs, educates and entertains. It incites thought, reflection and reassessment. It’s delightfully seductive, easy to read and hard to put down. And there’s a lot of it. So, you won’t be left indifferent.
