Scaling Agility

A session at Central Iowa Software Symposium

Saturday 4th August, 2012

11:00am to 12:30pm (CST)

We know agile methods are proven on small teams, but really...almost any process works with a team of one. As the team scales, however, the challenges mount. In this session, we focus on proven practices that help large software development teams in excess of 100 developers maintain agility. We also explore how to scale agile across the enterprise.

Come learn about ways to increase transparency on large projects, structure the development team, garner the important feedback you need from customers, and avoid the lack of rhythm so common on large teams. We’ll explore how large teams can conduct effective code reviews, maintain a consistent architectural vision, take advantage of automation, and build a development process that is sustainable on large teams. In lieu of focusing on specific agile methods in this session, we turn our attention to practices that the development team can leverage today to get started on the road to increased agility.
