The Project Management Institute formally embraced Agile with the publication of the PMBOK 6th Edition® and the Agile Practice Guide. Agile is no longer coming. Agile is here!
In this presentation, Alan Zucker will share the secrets of Agile and why it is so alluring. Like a good romance, Agile can brighten our day, lighten our load, and change our outlook.
Agile makes for happier customers. Agile projects are more likely to be successful. They deliver value incrementally. They embrace change. And, customers are involved in the process.
High-performing Agile and DevOps teams are more likely to recommend them to friends and colleagues. Agile practices create empowered and committed teams.
As with all changes, becoming Agile can be difficult. But like falling love, going Agile is worth the effort.
