What has been your experience with software projects? Have you generally been successful? Or do most projects fail to meet predictions for time, cost or functionality? To be blunt, do your projects deliver solid business value and happy and productive users?

This seminar is designed for anyone who is responsible for developing and delivering software products and projects. It is especially valuable for teams who have mastered their languages, tools and technology and now know that their greatest need is to work together effectively, to succeed "one step at a time", and to take an approach that allows them to succeed in the face of changing requirements and demands.

Agile, Lean and Extreme: In the late 1990's several methodologies began to get increasing public attention. Each had a different combination of old ideas, new ideas, and transmuted old ideas. But they all emphasized close collaboration between the programmer team and business experts; face-to-face communication (as more efficient than written documentation); frequent delivery of new deployable business value; tight, self-organizing teams; and ways to craft the code and the team such that the inevitable requirements churn was not a crisis. In this seminar leading experts in Agile Development will show how to transform your software development process, reliably deliver applications that meet the users' needs, and consistently deliver successful projects on schedule.
