The Future of Quality
Sprints, stories, and scrums? Pigs and chickens? Demos and retrospectives? What does that all mean, and why does the world need another manifesto? Agile sometimes can be perceived as simply “that project management method for software development,” but agile is actually quite applicable in other situations as well; the approach just needs to be tailored to each situation.
This session will orient participants to agile’s benefits in nonsoftware businesses and allow them to integrate the approach with other project management approaches they are currently using. If you're building something new or if the requirements are evolving or unclear, agile's iterative development process could be very helpful. And you’ll also see the benefits of teamwork, visual controls, and self-discipline that have become trademarks of the approach.
So whether you're building a robot or an insurance plan, or even if you’re leading a Lean Six Sigma project, consider integrating agile!
