In this talk, Mike Toppa will give an overview of Agile practices.
In some ways they are a refreshing dose of common sense, with a strong emphasis on good communication, trust, and mutual respect among co-workers, and with clients. In other ways they can seem radical, as they break down the authority structures that are typical of hierarchical organizations. Mike will bring Agile theories to life by reviewing successes, failures, and “lessons learned” from his own experience in adopting Agile practices in 3 different organizations.
