Make sure you didn't miss anything with this list of the Best of the Week in the Agile Zone (June 20 to 27). Here they are, in order of popularity:

1. I Don't Think That Software Development Word Means What You Think It Means

There are several terms used inappropriately or incorrectly in software development. In this post, I look at some of these terms and the negative consequences of misuse of these terms.

2. The Best Lean Startup Tool in My Experience

There’s a specific agile tool which I think every early-stage product team should use, regardless of whether they’re following the Lean Startup methodology. Lean Startup drew its roots from agile software development.

3. Agile Decompiled: Sprints

One of the practices in the Scrum methodology is the sprint. A sprint is a short time frame in which to get the most functionality in a product within the time frame.

4. #NoEstimates

When I started my career as a software developer, there was a running joke in the company. For each level of management, we should multiply an estimation by 1.3.

5. Are We There Yet?

When my kids were young, my wife introduced a concept for this question that she got from her family that is so brilliant in its simplicity that I wonder that this isn’t common knowledge with all parents. Something they should tell you during Lamaze class.
