Dancing inside the waterfall: borrowing agile concepts to benefit your waterfall project

Ways of Working

Agile concepts can benefit every project, including waterfall implementations!  In this session we show how to apply core agile concepts in any situation, and avoid saying agile “trigger” words that could create resistance.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn four key concepts applied in agile work efforts.
  • Understand the benefits and uses of these concepts in every project.
  • Learn how to avoid “agile prejudice” regarding using these ideas, and how to overcome objections.
  • Have a means for conversing about these ideas without mentioning agile.
