New YouTube video: Are you really doing agile software development?

Doug Michael - CTO, Jumar Solutions

Doug Michael – CTO, Jumar Solutions

Often the subject of intense debate, and also regularly misunderstood, the “agile” approach to software development is a subject upon which people get rather animated.  There are all sorts of misconceptions about agile – many fuelled by organisations which claim to be doing agile, when they’re not.

Jumar’s CTO, Doug Michael, is no stranger to agile – and has lived it for many years.

In the latest in our series of YouTube videos, Doug examines the differences between agile and other more ‘traditional’ methods of software development, such as waterfall for example.

He then goes on to look at the mistakes made by organisations who claim to ‘do agile’, specifically, their attitudes to

  • fixed timeboxes
  • sprints
  • scrums

…and how these should be carried out properly in order to conduct a truly agile process.

The video is the first in a series of two YouTube presentations focusing on Agile.  Part two will be made available later in the year.  For more information about Agile Software development, please contact us.  If you’d like to speak to Doug directly, please also drop us a line, and we’ll be in touch.
