Your team has adopted Agile practices with all of the ceremonies and artifacts–a major change to the environment. Yet you're still approaching software design, implementation, and test in the same old way. Perhaps you're ignoring certain elements altogether. Is it any wonder your team is struggling???

If you change the environment, you must change the way you work in order to succeed. This session will cover specific approaches to working styles and software design/implementations that will help your team to succeed.

You will learn:

  • Why the "old ways" of designing and implementing software are not effective in the new environment
  • New working habits that are compatible with the new environment
  • How to change how software is designed and written so that goals are achieved
