The topic: The Secret Sauce of Sustainable Agility
About the topic: Agile methodologies are, in a way, a revolution of democracy over the dark ages of waterfall project management dictatorship. With great freedom though comes great responsibility and it is easy to minimize the advantages of the ‘old’ and overuse the freedoms of the ‘new’. I believe one of the great disciplines created by the old world which are key to having a sustainable agile project and methodology is the Software Architecture discipline. This talk is about reviving this essential role and bringing Software Architects back to their rightful spot, right there next to the Product Owners and Scrum Masters of the new world.
