On Thursday I gave presentation for Java Users Group in Lodz about implementation of Agile methodologies in real projects in enterprise world. The presentation has been interrupted frequently with questions and has been followed by interesting discussion. The PPT accompanyingthe presentation can be downloaded here (in Polish): Agile w praktyce_public.
The most important observations and conclussions so far:
- There’s huge gap between wikipedia style theory and real world practice
- There are tons of obstacles in implementation of agile processes
- The benefits of Agile are enormous!
I need an excuse to investigate some more and prepare English version of the presenation – I hope some event like unconference will be comming soon!
