Extend your core Agile practices for even greater Agile success.

Original practitioners may have mixed and matched from Scrum, XP, DSDM, and other flavors of Agile, but the set of practices and principles was more limited than it is today. Today, what it means to be Agile involves a larger menu of techniques, mixed in more varied combinations, and matched more precisely to particular challenges. Many of these methodologies go beyond the team, changing the way in which the software value stream works.

In this workshop, we will provide an overview of the practices beyond the original Agile core that are now common features of Agile. Some sample topics we will cover include the following:

  • Kanban
  • Continuous integration
  • Continuous delivery
  • Story mapping
  • Lean start-up
  • UX design
  • Alternate estimation and planning techniques
  • Test-driven development
  • Behavior-driven development
  • Serious games
  • Scaled Agile
  • Measurement and forecasting

Not only will we provide an overview of these and other approaches that now complement the traditional Agile core, but we will also discuss how to select among them when deciding which is the next approach to adopt.
