The agile approach values iteration and learning over fixed outcomes and mental rigidity. Given the power of these ideas, what if we were to apply agile methodologies to our own lives? In this talk, content strategist and filmmaker David Dylan Thomas describes how he’s attempted to do just that and the impact it’s had on his life. He’ll also explore how technology has evolved to better leverage unpredictability and how that relates to agile being a better way to think about life and ourselves.
What You'll Learn
- The basics of agile methodology and how it differs from “waterfall” methodology
- How technology has evolved to behave more like the natural world
- Why agile is a good fit for the way the natural world works
