Jeff Patton on User Centered Design and Story Mapping

Jeff Patton describes the different ways Agile teams deal with users and then digs in deep into story mapping. Jeff says: "For me, the story mapping thing is going back to using the story as a genuine conversation to actually drive understanding of the system, not as what I've seen it become - molecular conversation about the details of a particular feature and how we're going to test it.

Kanban's Not Better than Scrum, It's Just Smaller

Henrik Kniberg, an Agile & Lean coach at Crisp, has written some great blog posts that compare Scrum and Kanban. He says it's unfortunate that most discussions comparing Scrum to Kanban are focused on trying to see which is better. DZone spoke with Kniberg about the differences in Scrum and Kanban.

Is the Agile Community being Unreasonable?

A recent thread on the pmi-agile Yahoo! group discusses some frustrations of the Agile recommendations that seem on the verge of naivete. Amr Elssamadisy of InfoQ covers much of the back and forth which makes for interesting reading. Make sure to read Dave Nicolette's commentary at the end.
