Hutton Seminar Series 2017

In less than twenty years, agile has moved from a fringe development practice, largely dismissed by industry, to the dominant approach for building software products and services.

This talk reviewed how and why that happened — examining the ways traditional roles, relationships and practices were broken down and redefined. It discussed why the cross-disciplinary team has become a key part of the agile community of practice, and reviewed how agile approaches have been adopted in other business areas.
