Jon Hagar, Jon Hagar Educational Services

Go inside a high risk, high reliability application environment with a combination of legacy and newer systems. These highly complex embedded and real-time systems support huge businesses and are expected to operate almost flawlessly every time. Most of the systems were originally developed with traditional waterfall and iterative processes and require extensive development documentation. So, how have they adopted leading edge Agile concepts with the full support of management while continuing to deliver products with the reliability demanded by their customers? Jon Hagar tells a fascinating story with many lessons for those of us living with hundreds of thousands or millions of lines of code that run our businesses. To avoid becoming antiquated and ending up losing not only market share but also your best people, you can make a commitment to improvement and evolution into the Agile world.
