The Agile Manifesto has been great for engineers, but has presented real challenges for business analysts and other stakeholders involved in the process of “define, build, test” for application development. The problems addressed by the agile manifesto in 2001 still exist today, magnified by the changing landscape of product delivery:
- Time to market has dramatically shortened and complexity has increased
- Information is available and abundant but continues go undocumented and is lost
- Communications gaps widen due to geographically dispersed teams and department differences
- Customer needs require iterative communication yet continue go unmet
And yet, our interpretation of the manifesto hasn’t changed in over a decade, despite the major changes to how we work and the environment around us. So what does today’s agile look like? Do the values of the manifesto still apply? When did Agile become more about process and less about the mindset? How can we merge the intention of the manifesto with the new way we work? How can we evolve agile concepts to tackle the challenges of today in a new way?
Join this webinar for an opportunity to rethink yesterday’s manifesto in a new light and deconstruct which concepts were home runs and which still need to evolve. We’ll cover the four key tenants of Agile and how to approach them based on new technologies and mindsets around collaboration, social integration and complex systems engineering to find balance for everyone involved and improve your enterprise agility.
