Much like the dotcom boom when everyone declared themselves a programmer; once David Norton (Gartner Research) declared agile mainstream on August 26, 2009, you can't throw a stone without hitting someone who claims to be an "Agilista." From the proliferation of "agile" frameworks and certifications, to all of the people who decided to hang out a shingle as a coach, it can be hard to remember the essence of being agile. This session removes the fluff and hyperbole, and gets down to the roots of what it means to be agile.

You will learn:

  • The goals of agile
  • How to apply these goals
  • How to prepare for the transition
