Plotting Your Agile Journey

When the Agile Manifesto was written it was brought into being by practitioners of a few different but aligned methods. Over time some have become dominant in our industries while others have continued to improve their specific situations and needs. All the while software has become ever more pervasive, technologies multiply and grow at amazing rates, and backlogs expand to include every capability. Which brings us what we even mean we we say our team, our company, or I am "Agile." In this session we'll explore the make-up of our SoCal community, take a guided tour of "Agile" circa 2019, and plan for how to make a safe journey to our destination.

Paul Moore is an Agile Coach and Trainer focused on improving delivery through technical practices.
