Agile Methodology 101…2…3

Been hearing about Agile more and more? Agile when used to describe Agile Methodology isn’t about being flexible, moving quickly or easily. Or is it? At the heart of what Agile Methodology seeks to do, it very much is about being flexible so the scope of work can move easily. Agile Methodology is a term used to describe approaches to software development emphasizing incremental delivery, team collaboration, continual planning, and continual learning. The foundation for the agile movement seeks to place:

  • Individuals and interactions over processes and tools.
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation.
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation.
  • Responding to change over following a plan.

Easier said then done…am I right? For those of you signed up for the SAPPHIRE NOW ASUG Annual Conference in June 2018, there are some sessions that can break it down for you.
