Recently, I was privileged to speak at Rally Software Development's Customer Summit at the Agile Development Practices Conference in Orlando. I gave a talk called Becoming Agile. It was a brief talk about our team's transition to agile. It follows our team's agile journey from our humble beginnings to our exit from our old organization and our new home here at Data Transfer Solutions. I've uploaded the slide deck from the presentation with notes so that you can read what was presented. I hope you enjoy the presentation and I would really appreciate any feedback or comments as well.

  • Thanks for having me here this morning. I’d like to talk to you today about our team’s adoption of agile practices. This was our development team 6 months ago. We were working on a large enterprise GIS project for a state agency and we going downhill fast. The project was going to go off the rails if we didn’t find a way to get it under control and quickly. We needed an efficient and effective way to manage the project or the wheels would come off before we knew it. In general, we were having problems meeting requirements, we had budgetary issues, and we had serious estimating problems. We needed to change direction, and fast. Our lead architect Dave Bouwman and I had both dabbled in Agile in the past and decided we would implement some Agile practices to get the project back on the rails. We did a bunch of research and decided that the practices and guidelines of Scrum seemed to fit the bill for our development team. We talked it over with the entire team and everybody decided it was worth a try. So, we put the Scrum training wheels on, got back on our bikes, and decided to take the plunge and become Agile.
