Stop Amazing. Start Working.

Stop Amazing. Start Working.

Amaze our clients with the beauty of Agile is always cool, but sometimes we just need to get things done. In this talk, we present the adventures of the most memorable ThoughtWorks Brazil team, which was responsible to ruin and rescue one of the key projects from one of our biggest clients. We tell the curious story on how some Agile principles and practices slowed us down, as well as how we could move from tragedy to success by breaking some rules, committing small heresies and telling white lies.
