Embracing Agile: Falling In Love with Agile
Agile has arrived. It is a widely accepted approach to developing software and is branching out into other domains and industries. As project managers, it is time for us to understand and embrace Agile.
In this presentation, Alan Zucker will share the secrets of Agile and why it is so alluring. Like a good romance, Agile can brighten our day, lighten our load, and change our outlook.
Agile customers are happier because they are involved. Agile projects are more likely to be successful. Agile creates empowered and committed teams. The teams deliver value incrementally and embrace change. As with all change, becoming Agile can be difficult. But it is worth the effort.
