Arriving at just before 10am is a pleasant treat for your first day at a new job.
Quick introductions and within 10 minutes of being in the building I am in a ‘standup’ going over the stories and tasks for the coming day/week.
A discussion with the Chief Technical Architect (of which I start off understanding 5% and end up understanding 50%), and the plan changes. Review tasks again and it’s straight into pair programming.
This is developing with Agility. Bringing everyone up to speed with short standups, lending from XP and Scrum to get the best value for development time.
When, like The Hut Group, you put Agility at the heart of your business, aims to ‘deliver good value development’ and ‘do the least amount of work to get the job done’ make perfect sense.
