Summary

Traditional thinking says the more critical the application, the more tightly its development must be planned, staged and controlled. The truth is, a flexible culture is stronger, safer and more robust. This talk gives practical tips for adopting an agile approach to planning, team interactions and risk management. When the culture shifts, teams achieve goals sooner and safety is greatly enhanced.

    That complexity curve shown for waterfall has a reason: technical debt. The agile development technique avoids that with repeated refactoring as the knowledge of the problem grows.
