Beyond Agile Practices: The Principles Behind High Performing Teams

A session at Agile and Beyond 2014

  • Edgardo Engalan

Friday 21st February, 2014

8:00pm to 9:45pm (LMT)

Agile software development has reached mainstream adoption, yet many practitioners are still struggling to realize any of its benefits. Too often, teams focus on the mechanics of agile practices as opposed to the principles that define agile's true value. In his talk, JD Sallee will focus on several of Agile's guiding principles and describe how they are key enablers to developing high performing agile teams. He will use two specific simulations (The Marshmallow Challenge, and The Modified Penny Game) to highlight principles like using working software as a measure of progress, value based prioritization, one piece flow, optimize the whole, and continuous improvement.
