Here are the slides from my keynote at the Scrum Gathering in Cape Town.

Positive atmosphere and lots of laughs, really enjoyed the audience! The whole topic felt a bit like poking a stick at a hornet’s nest, but it looks like I got away with it, at least so far :o)

The Essence of Agile

Posted on by

Here are the slides from my keynote "The Essence of Agile" at Agile Spain 2010, Madrid. Basically a whole week’s course compressed into a one hour lecture, worked out even better than I had hoped :o)

Impressed by the turnup, 300 people is good for being the first agile conference in Spain!

What is all this stuff?

How do they relate

The old tool was better

Take-away points:

  • Know your goal
  • Agile is a tool, not a goal
    • Tools don’t fail or succeed. People do.
    • There is no such thing as a good or bad tool. Only good or bad decisions about when, where, how, and why to use which tool.
  • Don’t limit yourself to one tool
    • Learn as many tools as possible.
    • Compare for understanding, not judgement.
    • Focus on Why, not How.
  • Experiment & enjoy the ride
    • Don’t worry about getting it right from start. You won’t.
    • The important thing is not where you are, but where you are going.
    • The only real failure is the failure to learn from failure.
      (but you can learn from that too…)
