Barry Hawkins attended a talk given by Mike Cohn at Agile Atlanta. Barry's summary is on his blog, and well worth a read. The topic was transitioning to agile. This was one of the questions that was given a lot of air time recently at CodeMash, where Barry was on the Wednesday night panel. I especially liked the characterizations of the Patterns of Agile Adoption.
I always enjoy talking to Barry (and reading his blog). I've learned a lot from him in the 2 years since we first met at Bruce Eckel's Programming the New Web conference in Crested Butte, CO.
