A co-worker overheard the comment that "agile [software development] is not always a good fit for introverts," or something along those lines, while listening to a webinar on agile testing. On the surface, it is hard to deny that claim. Right there in the Agile Manifesto we have two obvious yellow or even red flags:
- Individuals and interactions, and
- Customer collaboration
Now jumping over to the Principles, we find two more orange flags:
- Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project.
- The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.
