When Agile Fails; Causes & Corrections
The Agile approach to software development has become an industry standard. However, some organizations and teams still face challenges when attempting to implement these principles and methodologies. Admittedly a provocative title, “When Agile Fails” will deal with of these challenges and offer insights into how they can be overcome.
Our speaker, Craig D. Wilson, began his journey to Agile learning about small, self-directed teams as part of his graduate studies in Management Science. Applying those lessons in his management roles, he effectively implemented the latest techniques as the software engineering discipline evolved from time-boxed iterative development in the early 1990’s, to rapid application development later in the decade, and then into today’s Agile methodologies. With over 20 years of experience, he has applied lessons from the past to effectively implement the software engineering processes of today. Craig will provide insight into some of the challenges that organizations, management, and teams face as they implement today’s Agile techniques.
