06 May Not another Agile session
There is a swell of popular opinion that Agile is not just “old” but also over-decorated. We did a double-take when we learned Agile recently celebrated its 21st birthday!
Some believe that Agile has been ruined by project management miscreants that have been attempting to instil an abundance of frameworks, tools and metrics which, at its core, works against the Agile philosophy of being adaptable and of having a growth mindset. It’s been argued that most of these miscreants have been “doing” Agile rather than “being” Agile.
In considering all of the hubbub and in broadening our perspective, we reached out to Guy Eastoe, an expert on all things in the realm of Agile and projects. We asked him this, are we “Doing Agile” or are we “Being Agile”?
Find out by joining us at this first session and premiere of our virtual Infoburst series on 31 May 2022 at 17:15 – 18:00
