6:30pm to 8:00pm
Do you ever get the feeling that no two people mean the same thing when they say “Oh yeah, we do agile”? Or perhaps you sympathise with those pleading us return to Pure Agile, like the Manifesto authors intended. In this talk you’ll see a whistlestop history of how people have approached getting things done, and how there are at least 3 different things people mean when they say they’re agile.
My current (2014) talk looks at 3 different mindsets for how we have tried to manage complex organisations, how this has lead to the rise of Agile, and how the word “Agile” can mean several different ways of organising work.
To illuminate the differences, I’ll focus on 4 areas: how companies are run, what they do when they create new things, how they run projects, and how they reliably churn out a product. This also helpfully contrasts agile with Lean Startup techniques.
Hopefully, this will stop us talking at cross-purposes – so we can get creative and ship software! The slides are available on Slidehare.
