This interactive session will explore the premise of the agile manifesto and the implied promise of agile itself. Has either been achieved? In what ways has agile succeeded and where has it fallen short? How could we as a community rediscover the value of agile for ourselves, for each other, for our community and for the world at large?
This talk is designed in sync with two other events:
– A Lean In Agile (LIA) spiral event focusing on amplifying women’s voices and women’s needs on the same topic.
– A global retrospective exploring how could the Agile Business Consortium support the ongoing iteration and value realization of agile
