Agile has never been as popular, or as confusing as it is right now.

Let's take a look beyond the "rules" of Agile and instead talk about the spirit of it. We'll explore what Agility really means, how to embrace an Agile mindset and how to overcome many of the pitfalls that make up our Agile experiences.

Agile was meant to make the lives of Engineering teams easier, but as it has grown into its own monster it has caused much confusion and suffering. It doesn’t have to be that way. If we look past all of the “rules” that have been established in the Agile world we begin to see the intent, and the intent of Agile is still as helpful as it has ever been. We’ll take some time to chew up the meat and spit out the bones.

We'll discuss:

The Agile Manifesto and Principles
Embracing an agile mindest
The roadblocks that stymie success with Agile
How to overcome those roadblocks
How to distinguish the spirit of Agile rather than the rules"
