Best Agile Conferences 2020
Heard the word Agile, but don’t understand what it is? Ready to implement this technique in your organization, but don’t know where to start? Could build a clear Agile strategy, but progress has stopped? All such cases will be reviewed at the 2020 Agile conferences. The best ones are listed below. If you want to go to a new level, then you need to visit at least one of them.
Annually, leaders look for ways to improve their organizations and products. In addition, they need to find effective approaches not only in product development, but also in motivating the team. Over the years of improvement in various fields, the world was able to see Lean, Agile and Scrum techniques that are today considered the best.
Regardless of whether you go to the Facebook office or a small room where a startup team works, everyone will talk about Agile. These techniques significantly accelerated all work processes, which helped save money and human resources.
But Agile also does not stand still. Almost every year it is improved, which allows you to show even better results. This is achieved through research and testing, which you can familiarize yourself with at conferences dedicated to agile development techniques.
