Play Agile Anti-Patterns!
The popularity of agile software development processes and methodologies is imminent and fast growing. Many organizations and projects turn towards agile to help solve the problems of traditional software development. Scrum,extreme programming,test driven development,and lean are no longer the new kids on the block. However,with the rising popularity of agile,mainly due to lack of experience or management over-expecting results,in coming years many agile projects will fail miserably. Agile is not the silver bullet. In his enthusiastic style,speaker Sander Hoogendoorn,global agile thought leader at Capgemini and involved in agile projects since the mid-nineties,demonstrates the differences in traditional and agile projects,and shows why agile projects will fail – independent of the process used. Sander elaborates on a series of agile anti-patterns that people will recognize immediately. Think of the Scrumdamentalist,Agile-In-Name-Only,the Pseudo-Iteration,Guesstimation,the Bob-the-Builder Syndrome,Parkinson’s Law,the Agile Project Manager and Student Syndrome – of course,with many embarrassing examples and anecdotes from real-life projects.
