The talk
Are you flexible or are you Agile?
Thirty years ago, the concept of Agile software development was revolutionary. Today it is so widespread that it is almost considered an industry standard. Immersed in processes, frameworks, and methodologies we sometimes tend to forget what it really means to be Agile. We will explore an approach for establishing the “Spirit of Agile” as a core value even in a strict environment with seemingly inflexible constraints on the process, time, and budget, and hopefully make the experience and collaboration of teams and clients more successful and enjoyable.
