Going All XP On Your Business


Published on

Presentation delivered by Craig Smith at Fusion in Sydney, Australia in September 2012.
When XP and Scrum were devised over 10 years ago, they were created to improve the delivery of software development projects. As many enterprises have matured in the Agile adoption, many of the business users on IT projects are now attempting to use Agile approaches on their own non-IT projects.
In this session we will cover using Agile in a non-IT environment and demonstrate how the original XP practices map extremely well over to business processes. And how those in SD can help your business counterparts.

  • Some of these essay writing guides can be very helpful, but I don't think you should support and promote services that sell essays (written by others) to students, who then turn them in as their own work. That's just wrong, on many levels. Check out for loads of helpful tips, advice and instruction to help students write their own standout essays!
