The ‘I’ in Agile: A Personal Journey is about my battle with Agile and the challenges I faced. Why were we doing what we were doing? How did I fit in when everything around is so fluid? In an environment where everyone was an expert and an all-rounder, was my role still relevant? Would I still have a good appraisal if I failed - and failed fast and often enough?
This book is about how I felt anger and frustration, about how I learned, unlearned, and found sanity in the madness - iteratively and incrementally. It is about how I discovered ways to cross the gap from a state where I thought I knew everything to a state where I acknowledged that I did not know anything, and how that ignited the spark in me to look for answers to my problems.
