Agile Showcase Amsterdam: Innovating and changing with Agile, 25 Jan 2018, Amsterdam
Since the publication in 2001, of the then controversial document The Agile Manifesto , organisations have adopted, some or many of the recommendations for better ways of meeting deadlines and satisfying customers. While a few organisations are still with the waterfall method of practice, most others have embraced the agile as “the new normal”.

Now, over a decade and half later, let us see how much of the adoptions of the core statements :

  • “Individuals and interactions over process and tools
  • Working software over comprehensive documentation
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Responding to change over following a plan”…… have been achieved and helped establishing a faster and practical way of getting things done.

At present times, Agile communities are everywhere and the Agile philosophy is being adopted by more and more organisations. There are several frameworks that are in operation -, SAFe®, Scrum and XP, DAD, The Agile PM Framework etc.

But Agile after all is about iterative development and agile methods are written context-independent so if “pure agility” is the goal of the development team, they would want to change and not have one method to be the part of the plan. From various opinions, conversations and surveys, it has been seen that the teams who apply a mixture of methods adapting them to the project at hand and are not bound to a fixed process but willing to change are the ones who achieve a better rate of success.

Stalwart thought leaders and organisations with real experience share their views and know-how and take part in discussion sessions at this AgileExpo. The conference thus provides the perfect occasion for delegates to get involved in the conversation, ask questions, learn about best practices and stay together in the Agile initiative, where Agile has its roots in working, sharing and innovating.

Topics to be covered:

  • How to bring Agile to other sectors outside software
  • Advanced Agile concepts
  • Budgeting for Agile insights
  • Budget control
  • Agile testing
  • Integrated Agile
  • Is Agile and Scrum more implicit than explicit

  • Agile Portfolio Management
  • Resource Management in Agile
  • The future of business Analysis in Agile
  • Scaling Agile.
  • Agile Maturity
  • Scrum specific tips
