This is the exciting saga of an adventurous explorer who, with great trepidation, traversed the arid Adobe Outback, through the darkness of Total Eclipse, to emerge, caked in Scrum, scarred, beaten, bruised, yet Agile, where the tributaries Collaboration, Knowledge Capital, and Information coursed the Straits of Budget to witness him navigate joyous and thankful to the delta of the Great Confluence.
