Presentation starts at 18.00
Agile and more recently Lean software development has hit industry in a big way in recent years. Results vary, and there is very little actual evidence about outcome either way beyond the anecdotal opinions of people both for and against “the agile way”. This seminar capitalizes on experiences from 10+ companies and their road towards, through and sometimes back from “agile”. The seminar focuses on the purpose of agile and lean, and the major pitfalls of agile and lean transitioning. The context of the seminar is the product development of software intensive products and services.
