Track 7

Frobisher 4

Beyond breaking bad. The current state of agile in ten easy lessons

Coding Level 1
Advanced Level 2

After having coached iterative and agile projects for almost twenty years, author, craftsman and independent consultant Sander Hoogendoorn, looks back on what agile, Scrum, Kanban, XP and other agile approaches have brought us in real-life. In his well-known, high-speed style Sander will motivate why agile is dead, why you need to stay away from Scrum task-boards, how to stay away from estimates and deadlines, how to avoid red sprints, how to put your trust in metrics, how to draw owls, that projects are waste, and most of all that you are not Usain Bolt and last-but-not-least he will explain why you should stop doing projects!
