Building effective agile development teams is a process that is larger than simply buying some fancy tables and co-locating a group of developers. This presentation covers a proven process to harness the skills of individuals from the business and technical worlds and mold them into a working team. We will examine core and supporting principles of building teams, discuss each step in team building, stages of team development, and how to effectively scale agile within your organization.
