This is a really salient and timely piece on what is one of the most overused terms in software and product development.

The birth of the manifesto Recently, Per-Magnus Skoogh (co-founder of Agile Extreme) invited me to meet Arie van Bennekum. Arie is one of the co-authors of the Agile Manifesto that was written by 17 independent thinkers in February of 2001 at a ski resort in Utah, USA.
