Ten Things About Agile

At my talk at the Business Analyst Conference in London on Ten Things about Agile I covered this topics:

 

1. The agile Manifesto –  Use it as a checklist for your own projects

2. Scrum – A nice framework for development centric projects

3. Kanban – Visualises your current process and its bottlenecks

4. Big Bang – doesn’t work for executing a project!

5. Adapt – Even agile processes can’t be used as a recipe.

6. Information is not knowledge – The most important aspect to understand close collaboration

7. Silos are for farmers – better be on the same passture

8. Stay Close – The theory about bubbles.

9. Product Owner – Who can do the job?

10. User Stories – be very productive but also formal if required.
