Agile is a collection of values, principles and practices that help organizations to respond fast and efficiently to changes in today’s complex business landscape. Over the last decade, agile practices have been field-tested and proven in thousands of organizations around the world like SalesForce and Paypal. After dominating software development, they have been successfully applied in other areas too such as marketing, sales and even in manufacturing for the construction of cars and jet fighters. The goal of this workshop is to present the origins of agile, the principles behind this philosophy and to explain why and how agile practices work. We will describe the Scrum framework, which is the most popular agile methodology, and discuss how it can help us building hyper productive teams. Lean principles and the Kanban engineering process that have already revolutionized manufacturing and product development enabling teams to efficiently manage their workload, will also be shortly presented.
