Presentation: "Agility: Possibilities at a Personal Level"
Time: Thursday 10:45 - 11:45
Location: Henry Moore Room
Some observers of historical trends have suggested that the Industrial Revolution could not have happened without coffee and tea. Heating water for a daily jolt of caffeine enabled workers to be more in control of their waking hours and also to have longer lives because drinking water that has been boiled means the consumer is less likely to swallow the toxic soup that early water supplies presented for consumption. Control of working and waking is what the Industrial Age was all about.
Is it time for a truly agile approach to how we work and live our lives? What would that mean?
No coffee/tea/Diet Coke/Red Bull? What are the real penalties we are paying for force fitting Industrial Age (plan-driven) living into agile development? Is there really a way to have it all? What's the best way to be happy and healthy and productive?
