If agile development were easy, everyone would be doing it. Or at least doing it better. Arin will move beyond the hype about faster and more efficient software development teams and present to you five areas that he has regularly seen teams struggle when shifting to agile development. For each area, he will describe why people struggle with these topics, why you should try to do it anyways, and strategies to overcome the challenges. Agile development is well worth it, so let’s explore how you can do it.
