Knowing the basics of being Agile is essential for any team member, but out in the trenches, a good Agilist must be ready to identify and deal with Agile Antipatterns on the fly to help his team and organization move forward. What's an Agile Antipattern? Something that at first blush may seem Agile and useful, but in practice is usually harmful to an agile initiative. It's important to be able to sniff these out since they can damage your organization, and are often slippery to catch. Once they're caught, what does one do with them? Don't worry, we'll come up with a plan together. Through this interactive workshop, participants will gather a wealth of Agile Antipattern knowledge that will act as a guide for remedying these troubling but common problems in the field. We’ll use data collected from The Agile Antipatterns Project (http://AgileAntipatterns.com), and the real-world Antipatterns participants bring to the table. If you're struggling with a problem in the field, there's a very good chance you'll leave with a game plan to address it.
