We live in a world where we are already expected to know, where
competence is assumed, but competence disappeared with craftsmanship to
be replaced by production lines. Hierarchical management dug the nail in
the coffin as the goal became moving up to the next job rather than
getting good at the one you’re in.
Agile gets a lot of bashing, it’s easily
corrupted, but true Agile is about returning to learning. The learning
is integral to concepts such as BDD, TDD, Retrospectives and Scrums.
They all admit that we really don’t know what we need to do and if we
did we’re not that sure about how we should go about it. We learn
through both human and scientific methods. We appreciate that we don’t
know what we don’t know and our learning is never done. When we build we
continue to learn. We learn from as many people as we can. We are never
afraid to look the fool, our goal is to find our faults. Right now
Agility is humility, one day we may be craftsman again.
