Agile Principles Series: "Working Software is the Primary Measure of Progress"

Join us as we continue our Agile Manifesto Principles series with a program on "Working software is the primary measure of progress." We will discuss and solution the challenges around instilling this (arguably) most difficult of the Agile principles into an organization culture.

    It was interesting to see how different methods of organizing work produced drastically different results (and different working styles in individual team members). I think though that the time limit of the exercise was a bit unfair to Teams A and C, where the team had to execute a long project pipeline (in the case of Team A) or had to extensively document the project (in the case of Team C). One could argue that while these styles of organization take longer to turn out a finished product, that finished product would end up with higher quality. It would be helpful to have an exercise that demonstrates why this is not the case, or why a moderate increase in quality (if any) is not worth the extra time spent on delivering the product.

    Great exercise. A bit time-constrained. I was on waterfall group, and wish we would have gotten late changes to requirements (i.e., reality); maybe we did but I missed that?

    It was another great session. The use of Legos in demonstrating the concepts was very good. I learned something and I had fun.

    This was the first meetup I was able to attend in the series. The activity was fun and interesting. I am looking forward to diving deeper into the practical application of Agile practices in future meetups in this series.

    Completely first rate. The group exercises allow people to interact and gain different perspectives. Plan on attending all of these meetups in the future. Great work and kudo's to Dave Babicz.
