“I can tell you I came up with that word (Agile) because I was familiar with the book Agile Competitors and Virtual Organisations. We had proposed Adaptive, Essential, Lean and Lightweight.
– We did not want to use Adaptive because Jim Highsmith had given this to one of his works.
– Essential sounded overly proud.
– Lean had already been taken.
– Nobody wanted to be a lightweight.
We did this late in the second day and it took only a few minutes to decide on this.” ~ Mike Beedle
