Best practices in software development have, no surprise, evolved over the last 20 years. But some methodologies used across the world have not evolved with it. In the age of modernization, technology leaders search high and low for the best delivery models, frameworks, and processes to push better, faster, and stronger code out of the door. However, technology executives are stuck between a rock and a hard place: how can you ship software at the speed of light AND recruit, retain, and engage scarce digital talent?
A recent webinar hosted by Kin + Carta provided a deep-dive look at the current state of agile product design and examined ways to foster a culture of flexibility to attract and retain top software talent for your delivery teams. Gretchen Goodrich, Director of Delivery at Kin + Carta and guest Jeffrey Hammond, Vice President, Principal Analyst at Forrester shared insights on new agile approaches including an overview of FleXP, a new delivery methodology that aims to put flexibility back into the development process.
Following is a summary of some of the key points outlined in the webinar.
