I found a number of quotes from a popular writer and favourite of Julius Caesar :- Publilius Syrus that I thought were so appropriate to Agile thinking today, it is fascinating how these lessons have existed for millennia and yet we still frequently fail to follow what would seem to be common sense.
Here are some of his maxims:
On agility in planning:
“It is a bad plan that cannot be altered.”
“Never promise more than you can perform. “
“Nothing can be done at once hastily and prudently“
“To do two things at once is to do neither “
2000 years later and the old Maxims are still relevant.
