  • Kanban? SCRUM? Hmmm… just wording, Take the principles Gojko said and I agree absoluteley on it.
  • Elizabeth was right that we are thinking in pictures and building our patterns or models in our head if we just hear the <key>words. that is the reason why I like models, pictures, … instead of code lines (or textual based presentations) for describing something 🙂
