'Agile is dead' is dead: How to survive in the age of agility
Declarations that 'Agile is dead' started several years ago with even a couple signatories of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development joining in. Despite more joining the rallying cry to denounce Agile software development, adoption rates of Agile practices continue to increase. Saying 'Agile is dead' is practically dead at this point.
Agile is here to stay, but most teams and organizations have an inconsistent definition of what Agile is and what the goals are. Agile is a word that has been confused by years of over-use, misapplication, and overselling by slick consulting companies. One thing is clear, though - in a world of increasingly rapid change, the need for people, teams, and organizations to be adaptive is higher than ever before.
In this talk, Jordan will explore what 'Agile' really is, what it means for organizations and teams to be agile, and how you can adapt your own career to stay competitive in an age where the pace of change is constantly increasing.
