Does Agile work for you?

Posted by Conrad Benham on May 14, 2008

Thank you to all who came along to the presentation held this evening entitled “Will Agile work for you?”. While the question was never directly answered I hope I was able to provide some insight into what an Agile environment should be like.

I covered a number of aspects on Agile environments including, Team Composition, Team Empowerment, Technical Passion vs Domain Experts, Continuous Improvement, Agile Leadership, Bonuses and Management. Some very interesting questions were raised during and after the presentation. One of the questions was about introducing fresh graduates into an Agile environment. A challenging question was raised around the approach to introducing Agile into an environment that does not readily accept new approaches. This led into a vibrant and interesting group discussion on the topic that explored some fascinating areas. All in all it was an energetic and enjoyable evening.

Our next presentation evening, which needs confirmation, will be announced soon. You can expect the next meeting to be in late June. The next Code Jam is on Monday the 19th of May.
