One of the core principles of Scrum is “individuals and interactions over process and tools”, yet do we really think about how the things we do affect individuals. When we are implementing agile systems it’s all too easy to focus on building the process and overlook how things are impacting the people. In this session, we will discuss some observations on the human side of agile rollouts as well as revisit a few old favourites. Hopefully busting a few myths and highlighting some truths along the way.
Adam Borrows, Development Director at Grapeshot who has been running software development teams for much of the past decade presents the session. Having worked in industries as diverse as book distribution to the regulated power market, to computer games and now ad tech, Adam loves to prove to organisations that their industry isn’t the one special snowflake where agile methods won’t work.
