Fernando Colleone has spent the last 14+ years working with Information Technology and Services. After many years working at IBM as Senior Project Manager and Global Program Manager, he decided to shift his career to help teams at Red Hat to embrace and adopt Agile Practices.
Fernando loves to help teams to be a little bit better than the day before and to deliver what is important to customers.
Processes and tools over individuals and interactions
Agile nowadays might mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. You might ask 10 times what it is, and get 10 different answers. Because of that, enabling teams to be more agile becomes even more difficult. Different perceptions, different problems and lack of understanding of what really Agile is significantly contribute to misconceptions.
At Red Hat, in one of our internal Agile meetups, we asked people the question - why Agile is taken negatively here? - and we received some interesting responses that you might have seen before as well.
Their perception towards Agile makes it get a bad reputation. And how could we change or influence people’s perception to see the positive side of Agile?
In this talk I want to share the initial perceptions people at Red Hat had related to Agile, what were the problems or misconceptions they saw and how my team is trying to influence and change this negative perception as much as possible. I would like to show the different types of teams working in an Agile way, even if they are working with the Open Source community.
