YOW! Melbourne Workshop – Joshua Kerievsky, Modern Agile – Melbourne Nov 28 | Sydney Dec 6
Modern Agile with Joshua Kerievsky
Much has changed since the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001.
Pioneers and practitioners of lean and agile methods have examined weaknesses and friction points, experimented with simpler approaches, and produced agile processes that are safer, simpler and far more capital efficient. The result is modern agile. It’s values-driven, non-prescriptive and an easier starting point than antiquated agile processes. Modern agile amplifies the values and practices of organizations that have discovered better ways of achieving awesome outcomes. Are you still cramming low-quality work in the end of each sprint, struggling with growing technical debt, guessing about requirements, focusing on output over outcomes?
In this 1-day workshop, you will learn to deliver awesome results by:
experiencing how the four principles of modern agile guide decisions,
increasing safety in your culture, code and products,
identifying friction points and simplify your process,
engage the entire team to continually uncover better ways of working.
