An agile workplace is one that is constantly changing, adjusting and responding to organizational needs. Agility requires a dynamic relationship between employees, management, work and the workplace, as well as how work productivity gets measured. Many companies are now finding that in order to attract and retain the best and the brightest, they need to rethink the workplace, and how work gets done. 

Join us for this exciting and engaging presentation – “Agile, You, and The Workplace!”  Let us collaborate, network, and learn Agile principles and techniques.

Learning Objectives:

1. What is Agile? Agile simply means flexible, rather than being strict and unmovable in our processes. Unlike the Waterfall Method, Agile encourages a “take it as it comes” approach. Agile encourages the use of people over process; working software over comprehensive documentation; customer/ business collaboration over contract negotiation, and responding to change instead of following a set plan.

2. Agile Manifesto: we are uncovering better ways of developing  software by doing it and helping others to do it. Through this work we have come to value: 
• Individuals and interactions over processes and tools. 
• Working software over comprehensive documentation. 
• Customer collaboration over contract negotiation. 
• Responding to change over following a plan.

While there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

3. Agile Process: Agile does this by first outlining the vision or general requirements of the project. This vision is then divided into smaller chunks known as “stories.” Think of the vision as a deck of cards, and each story being a card in that deck. Instead of focusing on the whole deck, we can now prioritize which cards are the most important and start tackling them piece by piece.
