A bit of Agile Transformation Haiku

One of the Agile Retroflections of the Day I submitted is this one, “What haiku can you write that reflects on your transformation efforts thus far?”

I’m a huge fan of haiku; it uses powerful imagery to convey messages. This was the one I came up with for my customer’s transformation thus far:

Strong burro works hard

Bureaucratic harnesses

But it’s pull, not push

I was inspired to use a burro as they are real workhorses ummm… really burros and because I know a fellow Agilista, Lisa Crispin, raises them.

But upon additional thought, I’d rewrite the haiku slightly to become:

Burro of strong heart

Bureaucratic harnesses

But it’s pull, not push

What would your haiku be?
