If you can't describe what you are doing as a process, you don't know what you're doing.
W. Edwards Deming
Technology is destructive only in the hands of people who do not realize that they are one and the same process as the universe.
That quote by Deming says it all to me. Now...granted I do like to break things yet I thrive on process. I especially believe in software development processes...without a documented and consistent process.....you betray your users....they suffer. There is a need for structure that allows for reasonable decisions to be made based on appropriate business and technical input aligned with stakeholder demands and customer requirements. Besides being my interest in being a Chief Happiness Officer, my other favorite title is Scrum Master
Reading Susan Visser's blog today, led me to Agile Planning in real life: first hand advise for developing releases with agile planning., which does answer the question for me....yes you can have process and still be agile...in fact....it is the way of development today.
