Customizing Agile for Large Projects
: Agile methods (Scrum,
eXtreme Programming, Crystal, Feature Driven Development, etc.)
have been moving into the mainstream over the past few years.
Industry leaders like Yahoo, Google, Travelocity, and Capital One
have proven that, implemented appropriately, agile accelerates
project delivery times, increases customer and employee
satisfaction, and provides flexibility to changes in business
Forrester Research reports that 14 percent of North American and
European "early adopter" enterprises are already using agile, and a
second wave of adoption involving another 19 percent is underway
with corporate IT enterprises leading the way. To be successful,
large corporate IT groups have adapted agile for larger project
teams and today's distributed development environments.
On Oct 3rd 2006, Sanjiv Augustine
will present some of the
essential techniques necessary to customize agile for large project
teams. Learn how large agile project teams are organized, and how
work is divided, coordinated and tracked among them.
