Continue the discussion


December 31, 2018

Agile methodology and frameworks like Scrum were created for iterative processes like software development, and in recent years have been getting adopted more and more by digital agencies of all shapes and sizes.

And yet, this methodology created for development, and therefore _for developers_, meets with a lot of resistance. Why?

Whatever the applied method, project management is often viewed as an imposition, a constraint – a heavy process that slows you down, interminable meetings that interrupt your day. Does this ring true?

Scrum is in fact an empowering tool for developers and development teams. In this presentation, I will walk you through the basics of Agile and Scrum, debunk some common myths, and share some of my experiences with the practical application of Scrum, including working with remote teams.
