Caught-up (again) in the terminology trap?
I haven’t read the whole blog (Agile is NOT a Methodology | Agile Scout), yet, but I have seen “this” so many times before:
- SWEBOK started it
- PMI adopted it
- IIBA copied it
- Agile joined the crowd
As if Methodology was a terrible and contagious disease that we wouldn’t want to have any association with.
I understand where all these positions are coming from and I’m not pretending to have a clear answer (partially, because Methodology is such an overloaded term) to the “methodology vs. non-methodology” dilemma.
But, c’mon!, it sounds a bit like paranoia to me. After all, a methodology is not such a bad thing.
Plus, I’m not sure we really need an answer, either: common sense and experience should prevail!
