SPaMCAST 537 features our essay on the use of assessments for agile efforts.  Assessments come under a wide variety of names: appraisals, health checks, audits or even assessments. These terms are commonly conflated.  Assessments are a tool to prove a point. The essay in the cast explores the myriad types and reasons for assessments.

Rounding out the cast is the Software Sensei, Kim Pries.  Kim tackles physical security, including the wall (no politics included)!
