One other nice problem of the magical "Agile" short iteration cycles ...


So over lunch I told him how I saw things and asked him about it:

"So one day they want it the building painted blue. So we paint it blue. The next day, they thank us for the excellent work but have a new concept and the building should be red. So we paint it red. Then they come in the next day, thank us for our excellent work, and announce the new color is orange. I don't understand the problem."

He paused a moment and explained:

"At some point you stop being a painter and become the brush"
