Agile Unifying Theory

Over the last decade organizations have been adopting agile at an ever increasing rate. These transformations usually involve bringing a bunch of consultants in and sending a bunch of people to training and typically focus on either agile principles or technical practices.

Unfortunately many of these agile transformations fail because they don’t take a holistic look at the entire process of delivering and monitoring software. These transformations also tend to miss the critical role that product thinking has in an agile transformation.

In this presentation we will look at the relationships between business agility/agile values, product (design) thinking, and technical practices (DevOps) and discuss why you need to incorporate all three into your agile transformation. It will cover what happens if you only adopt one or two of these mentalities and walk you through how you can begin to incorporate these ideas into your organization.
