It is rare to come across a team that are following an agile software method such as Scrum or XP by the book. Most teams create their own "mashup" of agile practices to suit their unique situation. This talk highlights what's on offer in the different agile methods, where different agile practices add value and how to go about blending them into your current approach.
Rachel Davies coaches teams in agile software development techniques, such as test-driven development, heartbeat retrospectives and planning with user stories. She is passionate about agile software development because it increases the chance of success projects in the face of complex problems.
