AND Chat: Old Dog, New Tricks: Agile In 2020
Location: AND Digital, 18 Henrietta Street, London, WC2E 8QH
The 12 Agile Principles are 18 years old. Some might now be considered out of date; some vague/woolly and some wholly unachievable in today’s ever-changing world. In 2001, Agile was trying to change how we developed software. In 2019, Agile is expected to change organisational culture and the entire product development lifecycle, so how can these 12 principles help us to achieve this, and what challenges do we have to overcome on the way?
This interactive session will see two of our Agile Coaches, Darryl Bucksey and Kelly Cook, unpack these principles and try to understand the problems that teams face with implementing these principles in today’s world. We will co-create some hints and tips for each principle to try and conquer these challenges, and we will share our views on what we feel are the most important Agile Principles going forward.
