September Virtual Event: AGILE IS THE NEW WATERFALL! by Alexandre F Joly

Event Details



It has been 23 years since the Manifesto for Agile Software Development and IT Project Management was written.  What lessons have we learned? What actions should we take? Are our employee’s happy and customers satisfied?

During lunchtime, Alexandre F. Joly will share his observations and experience-based insights on the adoption phenomenon. With the will and intention to do better, let’s dare to understand the chasm and uncover new ways to make the world move smarter and with openness.

  1. Has the mass adoption of agility become the new convention? The new static compliance?
  2. Worse: would “agile”, imposed in organizations, often misunderstood and poorly implemented, have contributed to transforming this dream of a more human world of work into a factory of robots obeying false consultants? pretense and deception?
  3. The Agile Dream has become a morbid conformity nightmare for many.
