The single most important thing on a project is picking the right people. If you have good people then it doesn't matter if you are using Scrum or not, it will turn out well anyway.
We were used to getting shit done … then they told us about Agile.
There are no agile projects. Nor were there ever any waterfall projects. What we had were just a bunch of guys trying to get a bunch of stuff done.
We must destroy these methodologies that get in the way of programming.
These statements make even less sense. They are just babble, and they’re not about your trade in any conceivable way.
I don't read agile books. They are a waste of time!
Agile books out there are just people telling stories about stuff. Stories are great -- love to hear them. But I can't trust the authors of most of these books to tell honest stories and learn honest lessons from them. Instead they have a theme.
The problem is, real life doesn't have a theme.
I used to be an agile consultant, but I am alright now.
