Agile: more about ‘business capability development’ and not simply ‘software development’

By David Bicknell

I like Mark Foden’s thoughts on Agile, posted on his posterous blog . He  makes the point that  Agile is not just about software development but a much broader development of entire business capabilities, including comms, training, people-change etc. But,  as he says, when you hear of Agile, you think of  ‘Agile Software Development’. I think he’s right.  He suggests explicitly referring to it as ‘Agile Business Capability Development (or somesuch). ‘

Agile Business Capability Development  might be a bit longwinded – but might  be  an easy and excellent acronym! I wonder if there are any shorter, more pithy alternatives……
