    Agile Learning from Agile 2009 Agile Learning from Agile 2009 Presentation Transcript

    • Learning is key to agile success
      building a learning culture on your agile team
      Declan Whelan
    • Overview
    • Agile Manifesto
      We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
      Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Working software over comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over contract negotiation Responding to change over following a plan
      That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
      Kent Beck, Mike Beedle, Arie van Bennekum, Alistair Cockburn, Ward Cunningham, Martin Fowler, James Grenning, Jim Highsmith, Andrew Hunt, Ron Jeffries, Jon Kern, Brian Marick, Robert C. Martin, Steve Mellor, Ken Schwaber, Jeff Sutherland. Dave Thomas
