What Does It Take To Be An Agile Company?

Thursday, 1st September at Skills Matter, London

This meetup was organised by Skills Matter In The Brain in September 2011


What does it take to be an Agile company?

Everyone wants to be Agile, or so it seems. But what does that mean? What does the Agile company do that others don't? There is more to being an Agile company than doing Scrum.

In this talk Allan Kelly considers what it means to be Agile and what you need to do to be an Agile company, rather than a company which just follows an Agile method. He will outline the three different ways we use the word "Agile" - Agile methods, Agile Toolkit and the state of Agile. In doing so he will discuss customers, project design, strategy and portfolio management and how these need to work together to achieve Agility.
