Defining "Agile"

The term "Agile" can mean different things to different people.

That's because the word "Agile" is simply an adjective that refers to anything that supports the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto. Agile itself is not a specific methodology. The Agile community has created many practices and methodologies that can be described as "Agile," including Scrum, Kanban, XP, Continuous Integration, TDD, and much more. Thus, one person's experience of "Agile" may be Scrum with XP and another's might be Kanban and TDD.

This session will take people through the Enterprise Agile Maturity Matrix with interactive exercises that will help the attendees find out where their Agile values and experiences align and contrast. This knowledge will help participants emphasize their common ground and get differences out in the open so that they can be acknowledged and resolved.
