If you wait for perfection, you might wait too long

I guess I will take credit for this phrase (see title).

To me, it reflects a  key idea behind lean-agile-scrum.

It is an idea expressed in many other ways also.  Ex: The perfect is the enemy of the good, which originated in France.

I like my phrasing, because to me it has a sense of humor.  It teases you.  It says: “Why wait?  How bad can it be if you make a mistake? You might learn something if you act. And learn much faster.”  In fact, in most of our business situations, this ‘learning from real action’ is so true and so powerful.

What People Say

“Kelly is an Agile heavy-weight. He came in to assess my multi-million $ Agile development program which wasn’t delivering the right throughput. He interviewed most of the team and made some key recommendations that, when implemented, showed immediate results. I couldn’t ask for more than that except he’s a really nice guy as well.”
