do you have a personal favorite adoption pattern from your book? Perhaps one that you like using, or one that made you smile while writing it, or something?
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
Hmmm.... Do I have a favorite adoption pattern...? Actually no, I don't. But I do have a favorite chapter - the one that ties all Agile practices to business values and process smells. I am personally of the mindset that methodologies are too large and coarse grained, and that any successful Agile adoption that lasts, must be adapted and molded to the context and environment of the teams and organizations using them.
To that end, I've written the book describing practices and not methods. My favorite chapter is also freely available for download at InformIT.
Thanks for the question Ilja!
