Agile Methodologies from an Agile Continent
In recent years, Agile has impacted the way we create software. Delivering great digital experiences, arriving first to market and staying within budget is a growing dilemma in the technology space. We will talk about Agile Pods, a delivery model with an agile foundation, which addresses team dynamics, gamification and cultural bonding planted along a team maturity path. Agile Pods bring a better alignment between business and technology teams, driven by a culture of self-regulated teamwork and collaboration across skills, partners and country borders. We will show you examples of how this model works, and why it is impacting the way we create products. Why is Agility innovation coming from Latam? Latin Americans have dealt with turbulent economies, new legislation, and political shifts which have impacted their daily lives. It’s no surprise that the adoption and evolution of agile models has been so natural in the region, as adaptability and tolerance to change are part of their DNA.
