Devoxx 2008 - day 5: agile in the enterprise

This talk was about the way Scrum in combination with XP was introduced in the Belgian Postal services. It was an interesting story, touching upon all the growing pains of the rollout of an agile approach.

But the "enterprise" in this case is still located in 1 single building. This makes it still possible to colocate all team members, including the business. But things are all different once your company is divided over different buidlings, even over different city's and worse, different countries. The colocation becomes really hard... to say the least. This postal guy probably has no clue, but Erich Gamma, lead developer of Eclipse, knows all about it!
