What is Agile – easy to grasp material for the non-techie

Posted on by

I frequently get the question (often from people outside IT): “how can I quickly understand what Agile is?”.  I’ve collected a suite of links and videos over the years to help people grasp the basics concepts in 10 min or so. I thought I’d share them with you.

(pls note: the list is intended to give people a quick introduction, short and sweet. The intent is not to cover all aspects.)

I hope you find it useful. I expect this list to evolve over time, so don’t be surprised if new links pop up here in the future.
