15 hot takes on the future of agile

Agile is about to reach its 20th birthday. Software teams, support teams, and even marketing teams have been practicing its rules and principles for years. These teams have built some amazing products thanks to agile software development practices, but 20 years later, how is agile working out for us all?

To find out, we decided to do a retrospective on agile. We interviewed 650 agile software developers at WebSummit 2017 to get their thoughts on what’s working with agile, what should change, and what they’d like to see in the future. People were engaged, excited, and offered up some amazing feedback. We filled an entire wall with their responses.

Today, we’re opening up our retro on agile on twitter. The #RetroOnAgile hashtag is lighting up. Below we’re sharing some of our favorite hot takes.
