Scrummin’ For The Ilities

Uh, we don’t do “ilities“. It’s not agile, it’s BDUF (Big Design Up Front). We no need no stinkin’ arkitects cuz we’re all arkitects. Don’t worry. These “ilities” thingies will gloriously emerge from the future as we implement our user stories and deliver working increments every two weeks – until they stop working.
