Continuous Discovery: The Power of Pure Agile
The strength of Agile lies in the simplicity and clarity of the Values and Principles expressed in the Agile Manifesto. It can empower the people doing software development in any organization, and enable us to make rapid strides to the "land of better".
Software development is an activity of discovery. We must take action to reveal the reality of the problem at hand, the elements of the solution, and to reveal the work that is needed to design and create the software required. This is the process of discovery.
As leaders, activators, and influencers of change in the companies we work with, it's up to us to understand the philosophy of Agile and how it embraces and empowers the process of discovery.
I'll share my thinking about "Pure Agile", and how I use it in my daily work to enhance Continuous Discovery, Learning, and Growth in the teams and companies I work with. Let's explore together and discover the path to the future we want to create.
Outline/Structure of the Talk
This presentation provides a description of Continuous Discovery, why it is important, how I came to understand this, the benefits, and some tips on how to do it yourself. It is presented as a talk with slides, with some audience participation.
We'll learn a bit about the nature of software development, the sort of constraints and difficulties we face, and how we can approach going forward with a mindset of discovery.
