I presented “The Agile Qtopia – Do People Cry in Heaven?” at Agile Testing Days Asia conference, at Bangalore in March 2017. I was pretty amazed to see that for this ant-Agile talk, I was termed as the Best Speaker by an Agile conference.

Agile is projected as a utopian view of the IT world. Then why are you still crying? Behind the facade of some magical success with Agile, most of the companies and teams are still struggling to get the software right (and/or build the right software, whatever English restructuring has an official term coined for it). People – who are at the center of Agile philosophy – are unhappy. This does not look like a utopia. Calling it a dystopia would be an extreme too. It is a Qtopia (to answer an Indian smirk, yes! you can also read it as ***topia).

If you want to see what a lion truly is, you need to observe it in the jungle. Agile is not what you see in the books or talks on Agile. This talk was a critical analysis of the real Agile in India – the Agile in the wild.

Following are the slides for your viewing and thinking pleasure.
