Over the last 15 or more years, a new way of business and IT engaging to produce value has arisen. The Agile methods have swept through businesses large and small as a way of removing barriers between those with grand ideas and those capable of implementing them. There have been articles chronicling the successes of these Agile methods in publications such as Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, the Harvard Business Review, and more. Every one of these publications and their articles points to the change in attitude and working relationship as the key factor in changing project failures to successes. By doing something different — by working together as partners and friends rather than acquaintances or adversaries, companies have gotten the results they deserve for the time and effort they expend.
