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.)
Brief explanation of Agile (8 min video):
How a Product Owner works – “PO in a nutshell” (12 min video)
Article highlighting cultural aspects – Experimenting, Awesome people, Deliver continuously, Safe to try
Behaviours displayed by agile teams – 12 seemingly normal things agile people do
Case: Agile at Scale with 200 people @ LEGO (50 min video).
– Pay attention to how engagement/responsiblity was created for both team and department deliveries, and how positive energy was nurtured.
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.
