“You got your agile processes in my engineering practices!” “Well, you got your engineering practices in my project management!” All too often teams working towards agility stand divided between the processes (such as Scrum and Kanban) and the engineering practices (such as Extreme Programming). To be truly effective, you need both! Phil will show you that the way to be truly agile is to blend concepts together into a single great harmony. After a morning of learning, the afternoon content will be decided by you, the attendee. We’ll build a backlog of questions that YOU want answered, refine the backlog, and conduct time boxed sprints to answer the questions in those sprints.

You will learn:

  • The ABC's of agile and what it really means
  • The pluses and minus of popular agile methodologies
  • Answers to the questions that you put forth
