While classic waterfall is based on defined methods and stands for predictability, Agile is empirical and stands for adaptability.  Agile is not just about avoiding the pitfalls of developing the wrong software or product but is used to reduce overheads and keep them as low as possible. Considering both these methods have their own strengths and weaknesses, which one would you use to get the best business value and biggest return on investment (ROI)?

This practical workshop uses a fun game to demonstrate the benefits of choosing Agile over the traditional methods. Each attendee will receive the complete game instructions to enforce the benefits of BEING agile in their approach to software or product development.
