Help! As part of my personal campaign to spread the good word about Agile, I’ve enthusiastically volunteered to do an “Introduction to agile software development” presentation to an industry group here in Scotland. It’s a very important presentation for me, career and confidence wise.
So far I’ve spent hours and hours preparing my presentation. But I’ve now reached the point where I’m so deep inside of my subject that not only can’t I see the forest, but I’m having trouble seeing the trees too. I think that the basic problem is that I’m trying to prove that agile is best and I’m getting hung up on the logic. It’s obvious, when I walk through what I have got so far, that there’s too much theory and not enough practical stuff. All of the thinking that I’ve done so far has been good, but I reckon that I would do a better talk (right now) if I chucked what I’ve done and gave an impromptu speech with a white board.
Can anyone out there recommend a good 45–60 minute “Introduction to Agile Software Development” presentation suitable for wallets rather than techies?
I don’t want to plagiarize it, or even use it, just to read it and compare with what I’ve got at the moment.
