  • I have always found it hard to meet the requirements of being a student. Ever since my years of high school, I really have no idea what professors are looking for to give good grades. After some google searching, I found this service ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐ who helped me write my research paper. The final result was amazing, and I highly recommend ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐ to anyone in the same mindset as me.

  4. 4. 6/18/2014 4 Goals 1. Take a walk through the big 3 (XP, Scrum, and Kanban) 2. Build a shared vocabulary for Agile 3. Learn simple mental models for Agile
  5. 5. 6/18/2014 5 Agile vs. Waterfall Waterfall Agile
  6. 6. 6/18/2014 6 What is Agile Agile is a framework of values and principles to manage teams and projects. Agile is an alternative approach to traditional project management. It embraces change while traditional project management fights change. People across functional teams work together as one team, rather than different groups working in phases or stages. More human communication, interaction, and face-to-face. Continuous feedback from users and stakeholders. Iterations, shorter development cycles, and more frequent releases. Visibility of progress and transparency of process.
  7. 7. 6/18/2014 7 Individuals and interactions over Processes and tools Working software over Comprehensive documentation Customer collaboration over Contract negotiation Responding to change over Following a plan Agile Values http://www.agilemanifesto.org
  8. 8. 6/18/2014 8 12 Agile Principles 1. Our highest priority is to satisfy the customer through early and continuous delivery of valuable software. 2. Welcome changing requirements, even late in development. Agile processes harness change for the customer's competitive advantage. 3. Deliver working software frequently, from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, with a preference to the shorter timescale. 4. Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project. 5. Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done. 6. The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation. 7. Working software is the primary measure of progress. 8. Agile processes promote sustainable development. The sponsors, developers, and users should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely. 9. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. 10. Simplicity--the art of maximizing the amount of work not done--is essential. 11. The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. 12. At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly. Flowing continuous value, continuous learning, and empowering people. http://www.agilemanifesto.org
  9. 9. 6/18/2014 9 Why Agile 1. Increase customer involvement which can build empathy and reduce do-overs and rework 2. Learn faster which means you can adapt to change 3. Improve quality through focus 4. Reduce risk through shorter feedback loops and customer interaction 5. Simplify by getting rid of overhead and waste 6. Reduce cycle time through timeboxing and parallel development 7. Improve operational awareness through transparency 8. Drive process improvement through continuous improvement 9. Empower people through less mechanics and more interaction, continuous learning, and adaptation 10. Flow more value through more frequent releases and less “big bang”
