Lets Talk Agile : Excellent Presentation from Slideshare

I happened to chance upon a spectacular and to-the point introduction from Denis Caron. I thought it was direct [although sometimes it just was probably too much rather than just enough] and very exciting. It touched upon the normal subjects like agile not being a silver bullet/ magic wand but also that it is not a process or methodology. Slide 24 explained the main essence of Agile pretty well:

  1. Time-box everything and stick to it!
  2. Anticipate change in everything you do.
  3. Don’t build monuments, keep it light and malleable.

And the market compulsions have been explained succinctly too : Change happens fast, our competitors will not wait for us while we get ready! and Learning faster than our competitor is our only sustainable competitive advantage
