I ran into Agile guru, Lisa Crispin at the Denver Agile User Group meeting the other night, so I took the opportunity to ask for her opinion on this matter.  Obviously, Lisa is a proponent of agile methodologies, but I wanted to know if she thought there were times when agile might not be the best methodology for a software project.

Crispin and Janet Gregory co-authored the book, “Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams.” Crispin will be presenting at the StarEast conference in Orlando, April 26-30.  Check out this quick preview of what you can expect to see if you’re able to attend one of her sessions:

I’m looking forward to seeing her there!
