September at Agile Israel - Why Agile, and lessons learned from implementing SCRUM

The next meeting will be held on the 26th of this Month, Monday.
For session and speaker details go the the event page.
The first part of this month's meeting will be dedicated to a session we never got to finish at the first meeting of Agile Israel - “Why Agile” - an introduction to the “Why” behind the various Agile Methodologies and the differences between Agile methodologies and Engineering methodologies today. The talk will be given by Roy Osherove.
The second part of the meeting will be held by Joe Weisblatt, a technical leader on a large software project, encompassing almost 150 developers on 3 continents in 4 time zones.
He spearheaded the initiative to move this project to an Agile methodology.
Joe will describe his efforts and the results, including many of the arguments for and against within the project, challenges to adoption of Agile methodology, and the results of his effort - both positive and negative.
