Agile is so much more than an approach to software development under which requirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort of self-organizing and cross-functional teams and their customer/end user. It advocates adaptive planning, evolutionary development, early delivery, continual improvement and it encourages rapid and flexible response to change.
What you will learn:
Practical Agile - Scrum/Kanban - when to use and how we used it.
Agile orthodoxy versus reformation - assumptions, persistence, and resistance.
Shifting ceremonies - anecdotal evidence.
The dangers of “group think” within self-organizing groups.
