Turning the Ship: Getting a Traditional Organization to Adopt Agile Practices
The last few years have seen a major upswing in the adoption of agile practices, such as TDD and Continuous Integration, but how does an organization make the shift from traditional methodologies into agile thinking? How do you gain buy-in and traction that agile processes are something you should do? How do you get people to understand the value? This session will talk about how to do just that by focusing on real experiences from real projects that turned the tide for their respective organizations. We'll cover a variety of topics, such as people, process, tools, and technologies, so if you are in a situation ripe for change, you must attend this highly interactive session.
