One year later…

This week marks my one year anniversary as a Gartner analyst. I have authored 11 pieces of research. Most are advise for those transitioning to agile, but there are several aimed at more advanced agile practitioners. I have also co-authored several more, including the Application Development Market clock where I added incremental and waterfall to the chart for the first time.
The best part of this job has been the opportunity to talk about agile with over 100 Gartner clients over the last year. I have noticed a change in my calls over the year. Last year at this time there were a lot of “how do I get started in agile” calls. While I still get those calls, I am getting more and more calls from organizations that have successfully run a pilot project and are looking for advice on next steps. I look forward to continuing the conversation in future years
The hardest part has been to go “cold turkey” on coding for an entire year. I admit that I did some Excel VB hacking a couple of weeks ago for old time’s sake.
