The Agile Enterprise and Independent Software Vendors

Technologist and speaker, Gary Short roles up and unroles his list of
comparisions between strengths and weaknesses of the 'Agile' Development

Agile is all the rage at the moment, everyone wants in on the act; but
agile software engineering is not the same across the enterprise and
ISVs. In this talk we'll look at some of the different ways in which
agile software engineering principles are applied in the enterprise and
in ISVs; where it's easy, where it's hard, and how to make it just that
little bit less painful for everyone.
