A decade has shown that properly implemented Agile delivers improved predictability and quality.

It is for most business the first step towards the Agility. Agility is the capability to deliver more value faster, at reduced expense, while flexibly responding to changing demands.

Agility requires a systemic lean value driven transformation of both the business and product development organizations.

In his talk, Dave will describe approaches being used by leading companies to increase their Agility.

We discuss innovative business and technical practices that in some cases challenge Agile.Old. Business practices discussed include sustainable leadership; capacity/capability portfolio management;projects versus products; smart sourcing; envisioning; fixed price time/cost estimation.

Technical practices discussed include example driven design; loosely coupled service architectures; alternative programming models; software by example; code, deploy and monitor; randomized testing.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
