agileLUNCHBOX - What the Business Expects from Agile - link to recording

Yesterday there was a agileLunchbox session at OCLC entititled -

"What the Business Expects from Agile" - presented by Dave Ungar - here is link to recording of that session

Does "Doing Agile" make you agile? Only if you're delivering value to the business. "Agile" is a culture as well as a set of practices and tools. Tools are helpful, but you can't passively expect to drop the tools into place and be successful - it's people that deliver value. Going beyond the methods and tools of Agile, Dave Ungar will discuss the business side of development; How a business can plan and make commitments within an agile culture. This session will cover expectations and examples that allow development and business to work together and effectively plan and use their resources to deliver true business value.
