|A recurring theme in many ongoing discussions: how to sustain a viable agile consultancy business, software house or corporate department. These questions are currently mostly debated at the bar or local user groups (and Mary Poppendiecks' XP2004 keynote). It is worthwile to go in-depth on this theme with a larger crowd.
We also seem to be attracting people interested in Agile from outside the software development community (e.g. energy technology, corporate risk management).
At the beginning of the session, I was wondering if XP did not already cross the chasm. Maybe XP could be for only, say 10% share of “projects market” and majority of those projects already would have moved to XP.
VeraPeeters gave me the correct vision: every project has its own chasm to cross. Then, at an “industry” (I hate this word) level, we can expect to have a chasm to cross.
Laurent Bossavit seems to have a related vision. Read and comment it: http://bossavit.com/thoughts/archives/000811.html
