In this last module, we focus on how to adopt and adapt agile methodologies for your team, or your organization.
This module is the last of a four-part series on Understanding Agile.
What are the indicators that your project, or your group is ready for agile? What are the defining characteristics of an agile team? What are the qualities that you should be looking for in assembling an agile team? What are the ways to work together in an agile environment?
We will discuss the answers to these questions and more.
