Over the past 5 or so years, the terms Agile and Extreme have proliferated much of the thinking behind how we best build software products. This has been driven from the Agile Methodology community and its techniques and methods have certainly been gaining momentum.

* Are you seriously considering trying agile? Read a few books, but are still confused about where to begin?

* Are you being told to adopt Agile and don’t know exactly what that means?

* Are you in the middle of an Agile adoption and struggling with it?

* Are you an experienced Agile leader or practitioner and still feel that your not getting the investment returns you expected?

In this interactive workshop there will be no canned presentation materials. Instead, the class will work together to define a set of questions / challenges that as a group we’ll tackle—discussing possible approaches & solutions.Here’s a workshop session where you can get your “Agile Adoption” questions on the table and have experienced agile coach and practitioners Bob Galen and Josh Anderson help guide your efforts.
