Agile is not just for software: creating an agile workflow (applied to publishing a book)

Emily Webber Tacit

Session type: Workshop
Session duration: 60 minutes

About this Workshop

Agile and lean practices are not just limited to software development, they can be used in all parts of work (and life).

In this workshop, I will introduce how I used agile and lean techniques to write and publish a book. I'll guide participants through an interactive session that will give them the tools and experience to challenge non-agile workflows, that they can apply to anything.

This session is ideal for anyone who wants to explore different applications for agile and lean. Although we'll be using publishing a book as an example, you don't have to want to write a book to benefit. But if you do, this session will help you understand how to do it.
