Since the introduction of the waterfall model in 1970 as an approach for software development projects, a lot has evolved. In the 1990’s similar ideas around iterative and agile software development where introduced simultaneously in more and more organizations and projects, resulting in the agile manifesto. During this one day workshop, speaker Sander Hoogendoorn, independent consultant, former CTO at Klaverblad Insurances, global design authority agile at Capgemini and author of the highly appreciated book This Is Agile, will demonstrate how agile projects operate, independent of any specific approach.
Next, from his twenty years of experience in agile and iterative projects Sander compares the principles, best practices, roles and techniques from well known approaches such as Scrum, Extreme Programming, Smart and DSDM. He will explain techniques such as stand-up meetings, retrospectives, pair programming and test driven design. Sander will also address how agile projects can evolve into even more effective flow-based approaches, such as Kanban, and continuous delivery. Sander touches on many of the strengths and weaknesses of each of these approaches, and will illustrate this with many, many examples from his own projects.
Moreover, he will use eye-opening hands-on exercises so participants will be able to experience the difference in effectiveness themselves real-time.
