May 3: FAST Agile

Presented by Ron Quartel

FAST Agile is an experiment that proposes a new approach to organizing work, organizing people and also a collaboration model. FAST combines elements of Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), Story Mapping and Open Space Technology (OST) in a way that has never been done before with the goal of high bandwidth, high-quality software in short iterations.

FAST is equal parts management technique, culture changing tool, agile scaling framework, and a way to reboot creativity and innovation in an organization .

Please come along and help perfect what might become the best agile idea this decade.

Note: The original speaker for this meeting was Paul Osborn but he was unable to attend at this time
