Agile Maturity What Value Gets The Company If Measuring It
My talk at Agile Tour Riga 2012 conference.
Agile maturity is quite new and disputable subject. The reason can be that we saw good and bad things with Capability Maturity Model (CMM). Can we do differently in Agile? Can (do we need to) create Agile maturity model that helps our companies to pick best Agile methods and practices depending on their context? Can it bring value to people doing the work rather than just be one more “marketing tool” for managers and sales?
I will base my presentation on my personal experience with Agile projects and companies I have been working with. I will show how “knowing where you are” helped us to set “where we want to go” – choose right Agile improvements and practices. Last but not least, I will use basketball league metaphor to make sure it is fun and you are not bored! So if you want to hear real life examples and tips how to go from kids basketball league (follow the book) to NBA (optimize whole organization), join the presentation.

Agile works in projects? In outsourced ones? Outsourcing exec urges: ‘Stop outsourcing your software development’ ‘Unless you absolutely have to. And unless you do it with Agile. More specifically, Scrum.’http://www.zdnet.com/outsourcing-exec-urges-stop-outsourcing-your-software-development-7000004315/?s_cid=e539
