I Was Agile before the Manifesto

When the Manifesto for Agile Software Development was first published in 2001, Reflecting on this short document, I noted that every successful project which which I had been involved adhered to the stated agile values and principles, and most failed projects had strayed from these in significant ways. Over the past two decades I have done in-depth exploration in a number of methodologies — eXtreme Programming, Scrum, Kanban, Scaled Agile Framework, DevOps and others — and while there are many arguments to be made for and against specific agile practices, success most readily achieved when the core agile values and principles are kept at the forefront.

In this presentation, you will receive these key takeaways: 

– A realignment with the foundational agile values and principles
– An understanding of why you do not need to practice scrum or kanban or any other methodology to be Agile
– A new way of thinking about how to integrate an Agile mindset that you can use in your current projects immediately
