You’ve been working for several months on a key software initiative for the company and leadership has decided they want it faster than projected, so the team has been told they’re getting “the agile” installed next week.
“Great.”, you think, “Right in the middle of the project. Nothing like changing horses in midstream. One way or another, this will go swimmingly.”
Sarcasm and puns aside, you’ve got a point. It isn’t easy to switch methodologies in the middle of a project. Doc shares some stories from his own experiences helping teams make this change and provides a few pointers that can help you do the same.
While this talk is focused on testing, it involves the whole team, as agile methods usually do.
