Agile is easy...except where people are involved!

  • Apr 23, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • DDI

Many of us recognize the artifacts of agile...burndown charts, kanban walls, people pair-programming...you know the picture. So why do so many companies wish they were agile in some form or fashion but just can't get there? It's the people! It's the Social environment! It's the Structure! Let's discuss the details and work together to understand how it all fits together so that your team can succeed.

    Great information from Jay, and discussion. Nivia, that open space conference I was telling you about is http://agileopennorthwest.org/2014/index.php It's every February, alternating between Portland and Seattle. Here's Martin Fowler on the topic: http://martinfowler.com/bliki/OpenSpace.html

    Good attendance; great interaction; and the non-technical/mechanical focus of Agile was a welcomed change.

    We hope everyone can make it in person because we all know how difficult it is to join meetings remotely (wasn't there a talk in that vein?). However for those who cannot, please use the following dial in details:

    Phone dial in:
    US/Canada Dial-in number: [masked]
    Participant code: [masked]

    Video dial in via Google Hangout:

    https://plus.google.com/hangouts/_/calendar/bGFub29iYUBodWRhdC5jb20.kkinvmqdba22emra36f4iqscmo?authuser=1

    Note: The Hangout will be muted, so you still need to dial in to the conference line for sound.

    If we run into technical issues, I will post alternate means of dialing in on this page. Or call me at[masked]
