Agile! Huuuh. What is it Good For?

Agile! Huuuh. What is it Good For?

(Props to Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s War!)

Intro

The logic of Agile seems to be that if a team can code, they will code.
That managers will not surrender until surrender is academic.
How is a business leader to explain the sacrifice of so much for nothing?
Well, relax.
I can explain.
I don’t want to work pointlessly.

Song

Agile. What is it good for?
Absolutely Nothing, say it again.
Agile. What is it good for?
Absolutely Nothing.
Agile – I despise
‘Cos it means disillusion
For innocent lives
Agile means tears
To thousands of mothers how
When their sons go off to work
And lose their hopes
(Agile) I said, “Agile. Good God, y’all, what is it good for?”
Absolutely nothing, say it again.
Agile, Oh Lord, what is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me.
(Agile) It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
(Agile) Friend only to the tool vendor
(Agile) It’s an enemy to all Mankind
The point of Agile blows through a man
Agile has caused unrest
Among the younger generation
Induction then disillusion
Who wants to be unemployable?
Agile – huuuh
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again
Agile – huuuh
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it
No point to Agile.
Agile has shattered

Many young men’s dreams

We’ve got no place for it today
They say we must code to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there’s got to be a better way
Agile – Good God, now
Now
Give it to me one time now
Now now
What is it good for?
Say it again
Oh no – oh
There’s got to be a better way
Oh no
There’s got to be a better way. Yeah.
Agile – what is it good for?
