Clayton Lengel-Zigich Clayton Derek Neighbors Derek Roy van de Water Roy

Clayton Lengel-Zigich, Roy van de Water, Derek Neighbors and Drew LeSueur discuss the use of agile tools and what their place is in a philosophy that favors individuals and interaction over process and tools.

  • Manifesto says to not favor tools and process
  • Tools remove the “Human-ness”
  • Distributed teams are often a big reason for wanting to use tools
  • Digital tools severely decrease visibility
  • Tools can prevent/impede conversations
  • Writing something physically forces your brain to engage
  • Blank index cards are more flexible than any tool
  • Tools become a crutch for bad decisions
