So what does it actually mean to manage an agile project? What does it take to get acceptance and adoption, and to introduce the practices to an organization? Is it more effective to introduce aspects of the approach, hoping for some level of take-up, even if it means compromising many of the overall foundations? Or is it necessary to adopt agile wholesale, and fend off attempts to water it down? In this presentation, Mark Mullaly explores the agile phenomenon: where it came from, what it is meant to do, and how to best make it work. Whether you are trying to make it work, or just want to find out more about what it's about, be sure to tune in as we try to deftly explore the agile phenomenon.
