Reimagining Agile: Back to the Basics, Forward to the Future
Jon Kern Jim Highsmith Heidi Musser Sanjiv Augustine Ellen Grove

In an era where technology is evolving at an unprecedented pace, the essence of Agile methodologies needs a transformative reimagining to stay relevant and effective. Drawing inspiration from Jim Highsmith, this session proposes a dual-focused approach that revisits the core principles of Agile engineering practices and DevOps while embracing the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to innovate and enhance software development processes. Attendees will explore how fundamental Agile practices, combined with cutting-edge AI, DevOps and MLOps strategies, can create a resilient, efficient, and forward-looking development culture. We’ll explore: - Revitalizing Agile Engineering Practices: Dive deep into enhancing software development with practices like Test-Driven Development (TDD), Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), and Infrastructure as Code (IaC), ensuring a solid foundation that supports rapid, reliable delivery cycles. - Embracing DevOps for Agile Evolution: Examine how DevOps principles can be integrated into Agile methodologies to streamline and automate processes, from code integration to deployment, fostering a culture of continuous improvement. - Innovating with AI in Agile Environments: Discover how AI can be leveraged to assist in various stages of the development process, from code generation and bug fixing to predictive analytics for system optimization, enhancing both the efficiency and quality of software projects. - Sustainable and Ethical AI Integration: Address the importance of sustainable development practices and the ethical considerations in AI, ensuring that advancements in technology are both environmentally responsible and aligned with societal values. - Future-Proofing Agile Practices: Look ahead to the future of software development, exploring emerging technologies and practices that can be integrated into Agile frameworks to keep them at the forefront of innovation. Whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of core Agile practices or explore the integration of AI within your development processes, this session will provide valuable insights and practical strategies.
