Abstract:
What is this thing everyone calls Agile? If your process for software development is working for you, you may be wondering: Why should I change? What’s so different? In this introductory talk we’ll answer your questions. We will look at a brief history of Agile ideas. We’ll examine whether Agile has anything to offer you. Shifting to Agile software development may involve changing your work culture to improve your production, and that’s uncomfortable and challenging. So, why do others embark on this journey? What do they hope to get out of it?
To provide context we’ll:
  • Look at the primordial ooze from which Agile methods and practices emerged and evolved
  • Discuss the impact of the Agile Manifesto and 12 Principles on the way we do software development today and the movement to business agility
  • Describe working “Agile” - similarities, differences, and what might need to change
  • Describe what you can do next Monday to get started

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn common myths and misconceptions about Agile
  • Understand the “why” behind what we do
  • Understand the importance of identifying your existing culture and how it impacts adopting agile
  • List ways you can get the best start on your Agile journey
