The uptake of "Agile" methods has reduced focus on the practices and approaches that are needed to get the full benefit of the approach.
Read: Agile's not working as well as it could.
Often, development teams are not equipped to perform well in an "Agile" situation with the result that the teams, and the results, suffer.
Read: Agile often hurts developers.
Organizations push for results, and are not investing in the requisite training, or providing the needed slack for teams to learn to perform well.
Read: Pressure crushes progress.
We'll discuss what developers can do, and what the "Agile Industry" needs to do, to improve the lives of development team members.
Read: We've got some ideas. XP is in there.

Learning Outcomes:
  • We hope to inspire developers to focus on their own responsibilities, and to encourage their organizations to support effective Agile development.
  • Renewed focus on delivering shippable "Product Increments".
  • Ideas on using the Increment to improve our lives.
  • We'll describe what we and others are doing to influence the "Agile Industry" to address this problem.
