Agile is Everywhere

About the Presentation

Technologists created Agile to deliver software more quickly, predictably, and successfully. In this presentation, Alan Zucker argues that Agile is everywhere. The values and principles are organic and align with natural ways of working. Its practices are broadly applicable across professions, industries, and business domains. All organizations, from non-profits to high-tech, can benefit.  

The Manifesto of Agile Software Development presents a set of values and principles for delivering working software quickly and providing value to customers. Small changes extend the Manifesto and make it universally applicable. All knowledge work domains and even some traditional ones can benefit.  

Agile practices and tools enable and empower all. Examples demonstrate how techniques can be applied to traditional industries such as the military, construction, education, and non-profits. Agile provides a framework for solving complex problems with creativity and innovative thoughts. They allow us to harness our energies, improve our focus, and achieve greatness.
