Agile NOT By The Book
Agile is so much more than rituals and buzzwords, but often the real value is lost as organizations focus more on adhering to processes than the reasons behind them. Teams all too easily fall into the trap of following a prescribed method and deviate little from that original template. A continuous improvement approach implies a team is regularly questioning, tweaking, and iterating on its own version of Agile. Today's set of practices and processes should not be identical to those from a year ago.
Join Blake Nyquist and Wade Wachs for a discussion on Agile thinking and how to break out from a fixed set of processes. You will leave this session with an increased understanding of how Agile practices can and should be useful, along with ways to focus on their value in your organization. Bring pains points from your own Agile efforts to discuss with others in the session and take actionable suggestions back to your team on Monday.
