First Person (Satyapal Chhabra) – it does not necessarily address what agile world is but it has ratchets to go faster and quicker, take example talk about performance, if you look at the classical performance testing it gives you up to transition phase , it’s still a waterfall and we are going very much penetrations in a day to get the optimum state, so if you look at it , inclusion of all the aspects of people who are participating because the hype cases moves right there and you get value out of it, so chabra I am not gonna address , it’s just that the reality is how determines it , its traditional but it delivers and my argument, I am not a kings expert, I would say it’s a republican on democrats.
