By some accounts, more than 50 Agile approaches, frameworks, and methodologies are in use today. Many of these approaches are influenced by the values and principles in the Agile Manifesto. We will explore why there is such a diaspora of approaches and the use cases where some of the more common approaches are typically used.
Join us as Derik Pack gives us an overview of four popular Agile flavors, compares and contrasts them, and shares his experiences leading Agile implementations.
