'Agnostic Agile' by Stefano La Porta & Toms Rusovs

Being agile is all about embracing change. Therefore, the notion of agility should apply to the process itself. If it is not changing over time, chances are, you are not being agile. In today’s dynamic business environment, we should be careful with “one-size-fits-all” frameworks and rather tailor the process to people and context. In this talk, we will focus on the mind-set, principles and values required to become Agnostic Agile.
