True. but you take 1 thing out of context. And I never said it was just a line. Without acceptance criteria and a design for instance.

Maybe my view is too tainted because of this almost toxic experience at the moment, but there’s something like “getting things done” and “iterating”, which is agile’s goal, no ?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
