Agile is often advertised as the silver bullet in the training class that will deliver "twice the scope in half the time." In principle, the topic of this webinar, agile implementation failures, may be unexpected from someone who used Agile practices long before they were called Agile and who was a champion of adoption of XP and Scrum in the early 2000s when Agile adoption was considered "crazy." One of the fundamental principles of Agile is to fail fast, learn, and recover. But accepting failure is not always as easy as it seems. When a manager “motivates” his team with "failure is not an option" or expects the Project Manager or the Scrum Master to be a "pusher" rather than a servant leader, learning from small mistakes becomes an important process. This webinar presents several situations when Agile failed, analyzing the root cause and what could have been done differently to avoid failure.

Nowadays, agile is a very trendy topic, and there are over a hundred certifications and thousands of courses teaching you how to be Agile, usually by learning a framework. Like any other skill or expertise, mastering Agile requires more than a course and the guide upon which it is generally based. Scrum, the most used Agile framework, is described by its authors as "lightweight, simple to understand but difficult to master," and any practitioner with more than a couple of years in the Agile trenches knows that is neither simple nor easy. This webinar is a collection of real life situations where traditional teams moved to Agile frameworks. The webinar is an analysis of the human aspect of transitioning to a new way of working in parallel with learning new technologies, products, and programming languages while last but not least having the management pressure to deliver.

Educators are continually searching for techniques to improve knowledge retention, especially during the pandemic. Research shows that poor knowledge retention exists because teaching typically follows a traditional waterfall approach, which studies show to be ineffective. The “learn and forget” style of rote learning should be discouraged. Employers are frustrated as they find themselves retraining new hires on concepts that should have been learned in schools. Employing agile techniques in pedagogical practices increases knowledge retention. Delivering a course in order of importance, with constant stakeholder collaboration, and adapting the delivery based on feedback increases learning and knowledge retention. Also, educators should use a test-driven development approach with continuous planning and frequent feedback to improve learning and satisfaction.
