For decades organizations are looking for the best way to do software development. Many methods have been explored and frameworks have been published to guide organizations on how to do it. Although our industry as a whole has improved, many organizations struggle. Delivering working software still seems to be hard.
Agile takes a different approach to becoming the best in software development by stating “We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it”. Agile never promised to be silver bullet, it’s not a one size fits all approach and doesn't have all the answers.
We hear from organizations that have become successful with agile, but there are also agile transformations that are not bringing the expected results. Better software development is not about implementing the the best framework or method throughout the organization to have everybody working in in the same way. What matters is that people, teams and organizations become flexible and able to adapt to the needs and situation at hand.
Continuous improvement is what makes agile work. It’s at the heart of agile. In his keynote Ben Linders will show why continuous improvement matters in agile and what you can do to help your organization to really become agile.
