Agile Development Overview

Agile software development, as announced in the Agile Manifesto of February, 2001, and as practiced through Scrum, Extreme Programming and other common sense approaches over the last ten years, is getting a lot of attention as managers everywhere turn to "quicker, cheaper, better." This talk will address the underlying theories and principles of Agile development, the three management roles, the three phases of implementation, and the three impediments to success. Anecdotes will be used throughout to stop the entire talk from going dry.
