“I first set foot on the agile path 10 years ago, when I was a developper. Back then they called it Extreme Programming.
I very quickly realized it was far more efficient then the conventional ‘waterfall’ model, helping me build better software – much faster.
Since then the Agile mindset has helped me deliver huge and complicated projects. I have come to see it as one of the most important tools in my toolbox as a manager and as a software engineer. It enhances my understanding of problems, helping me see more clearly what needs to be done. I use Agile tools like a doctor uses a stethoscope.”
