It's hard to believe that the agile methodology officially turned 20 years old last year. What once was an outlying practice for startups collaborating in colocated spaces with stickies and whiteboards is now a sophisticated, scalable, and widely used set of agile software development processes and tools.
There’s a rich history behind agile development and why organizations use agile methods such as scrum and kanban to modernize applications, improve customer experience, and implement digital transformations. There’s also a tremendous body of knowledge around these methodologies and their intersections with design thinking, product management, and devops. Fewer people today ask, “What is agile?” More are seeking guidance for how to align their teams on agile best practices.
