The title of my session is “What (Else) Can Agile Learn from Complexity?”, and in this talk I will attempt to show the audience that, apart from self-organizing teams and emergent design, there’s a lot more that software development can learn from complexity theory.
After many weeks of reading scientific articles, distilling ideas, searching quotes, and polishing slides, I can now finally show you the first version of my presentation. Please feel free to give me feedback. I know I will have to tweak the slides here and there to fit the various schedules and audiences.
And if you’re going to Agile 2009, I hope you can find the time to attend my talk on Tuesday, at 14:00hrs. I’ve noticed that I’m up against Alistair Cockburn, Mike Cohn, Mary Poppendieck, and several other celebrities. So it seems I can really use some of you to fill those empty chairs in the room!
