February 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Agile Manifesto. Follow along as we reflect and look to the future.

In a previous post, Mike Sowers asked readers to think about where they were in February of 2001 at the inception of the Agile Manifesto. Here’s a fun look back by some our team members.

EVP Mike Sowers was helping organizations transform their software testing capabilities at a privately-held software engineering firm.

Senior Consultant Jonathan Kauffman was middle-schooler who liked to play video games and read books.

COO Dave Burke was a Director at Verizon, leading a large software development team responsible for several strategic projects that emanated from the Bell Atlantic / NYNEX / GTE mergers which created Verizon.

Senior Consultant Byron Katz was pursuing a Bachelor of Architecture at University of Tennessee. He remembers playing a lot of Everquest and other online games.

Consultant Chao Din was a technical manager with the Bureau of Census using Microsoft and Oracle technologies, .NET, C#, C/C++, PL/SQL, and was in charge of Computer Maturity Model (CMM) Level 2 compliance.

Consultant Rustam Savaziyev was a high-schooler liked robotics and soccer. He says homework was the only thing agile he was doing at that time.

Although I had stepped away from software for a few years, being a stay-at-home mother of three kids under the age of 6 kept me very agile.
