Adaptive is not the opposite of planned.

Glenn agreed with me on the idea of planned and adaptive being two poles on a scale. Funnily enough this caused me to reassess the idea.

Planning is indispensible, plans are useless. Plans that don't accomodate change are stupid.

Are you stupid? I didn't think so. (You are reading this, after all.)

So what is the opposite of adaptive? It stikes me that the answer is stubborn.

I need to re-do my model. And with planned now freed up I think I'll apply it to the Y axis. Opposite of planned = unplanned.

And now we have another think about where Agile methods come into play.

Glenn? Other readers? Thoughts?
