Lessons learned: being Agile in a Waterfall world

A session at SDD 2016

Tuesday 17th May, 2016

11:30am to 1:00pm (GMT)

Scrum and XP have found a strong following in the development community. But most non-development groups (such as web administrators, production support, security, testing, and users/stakeholders) inside the enterprise are not only far from Agile, they’re not really interested in trying to be more Agile.

We’ll start with a refresher on Scrum, and then use real-world experiences from large enterprise development projects to teach you how to effectively work with non-Agile teams. Instead of trying to "convert" them, we’ll discuss strategies to adapt to their needs while remaining Agile in the development realm.
