Agile has become the latest hip thing in project management, the thing everyone says you need to succeed. It seems that pundits are saying that agile applies to everything, but does it? So, who really needs agile anyway?
In this presentation we will peel away the layers of added messages that have been attached to agile and now cloud the core message. We will identify the heart of agile and clearly define where it fits and were it doesn’t fit.
Key Take Away Concepts of this Program:
• Gain a clear understanding of what agile is, and what it isn’t
• Understand when to use agile and when not to
• Distinguish “core agile” from the numerous other things that have been attached to it
• Identify Short Cycle Systems and Long Cycle Systems
• Understand how agile applies in Short and Long Cycle Systems
• Understand how to use agile in mixed Short and Long Cycle Systems
Get answers to other common questions around agile:
Is agile just for software? Can I use agile on a construction project? What about marketing or consulting? Is there any place it doesn’t fit?
Come to the event and find the answers to these and many other questions.
