Date and Time:
March 27th, 2006
Gathering as of 17:30, we start promptly at 18:00.
This month we have the distinct pleasure of hosting two speakers which are internationally known in the agile conference world (Agile International conference, XP international conference etc..) for their research and studies into the adoption and management techniques in Agile Projects. Fortunately, they also live and work in Israel's Technion, and have both agreed to speak to our group!
17:30 – Gathering
Though agile software development methods have been around for almost a decade, in many software organizations practitioners still keep asking themselves questions such as: how to establish an agile software development culture, how to achieve a full adoption of a specific agile software development method, and, how to maintain its implementation. Indeed, illustratively, with respect to Extreme Programming, Kent Beck starts the second edition of Extreme Programming Explained by stating that “Extreme Programming is about social change”.
In this two-part presentation we will first address the nature of the cultural change that should take place when agile software development is introduced into the organization and second, we will work on specific management practices that support the development of agile software projects.
Meeting will take place at Microsoft Ra'anana:
2 Hapnina St, Raanana
Floor 0 , Dekel Room
It is the new building across from Amdocs.
After the first traffic circle, there is an area for (free) parking on the right.
