Agile Ideas. Agile Development. Agile Software. Agile, and its variants, are the methods of modern industry and modern commerce. Yet, they are as old as industry itself. They become prominent when circumstances demand it.
Anna and Rohit read one of the founding texts of the Agile movement, The Machine That Changed the World and explain why they read it so you don’t have to.

Rohit from IT attempts to address the question raised in the last episode: “Is it better to be a 70% with a 20% probability or a 20% boyfriend with a 70% probability?” The answer to that question involves the distinction between probability and fuzzy sets. It would be an entirely academic discussion if it weren’t central to the machinery of modern marketing. Don’t want to think of yourself as a having a 70% chance of being 80% of a customer? Then you better listen.
If you want a little more context for this problem, you might want to Anna raise the issues of Fuzzy Sets in the “Knowledge Engineered Boyfriend”.
