Investing In Agility: Podcast with James Shore

Investing In Agility: Podcast with James Shore - James Shore discusses how Agile has evolved, how organizations can adopt it, and why businesses need to be people-oriented instead of process-oriented.

Learn how to get, and stay, Agile.

In just over a decade, we’ve witnessed how agile software development began as a grassroots movement to eventually progress and become a mainstream methodology. Agile’s approach aims to change the software development process by inviting organizations to invest in a philosophy that would ideally increase productivity and ROI, and meet business goals — all while creating better environments for IT teams and individuals.

Agile Fluency® Project Consultant and Co-Founder  James Shore shares the concept of energized work, the evolution of team rooms, applying agile methodology by looking at complexity in large-scale enterprises, and advises on how organizations can invest in agility.
