Agile 2007 Presentation Results

The following is a wrap-up of data regarding my presentation sessions at Agile 2007.

I am a professional software development trainer and as such, I am always well prepared. My approach is to prepare really well for each presentation, and serve the audience by being open to questions and feedback as the talk is delivered.

In response to feedback from attending students, I have since updated this Agile2007 talk to include all-new figures, graphs and diagrams. In the event Agile2007.com goes 'blank' and the above link no longer works, I am providing the session abstract here:

==<ABSTRACT>==================================

Agile and Entrepreneurial Thinking Patterns

Daniel Mezick, New Technology Solutions Inc.


Successful Agile practitioners think, believe, and act very much like successful entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs engage in iterative, empirical processes.


They clearly recognize and understand the futility of engaging in prediction. Entrepreneurs routinely invest the minimum to prove an idea true or false, and then "pull the plug" very quickly when test results prove negative. Entrepreneurs routinely defer commitment to irrevocable decision-making until the last possible moment.


These behaviors are part of what we are currently refer to as Agile and Lean methods. The apparent strong link between Agile and entrepreneurial patterns represents a fertile area of exploration and research. If the best leaders in the Agile space are in fact the best at thinking in entrepreneurial patterns, we have a new tool for understanding and developing Agile best practices. We also have a new way of understanding why, when, where and how Agile software development works so well.


If there is strong correlation between successful Agile practice and successful entrepreneur practice, we have a new and more definitive model for identifying and developing the best Agile leaders and practices. This session brings to attention key parallels from the writing of current thought leaders on Agile, Lean, and entrepreneurship.


The presentation cites case studies from both the Agile and entrepreneurship domains. Intended to provoke thought and discussion, this session raises important questions about the empirical process, entrepreneurship and the implications for Agile leaders, modern business and the Agile movement.


o The large overlap of Agile patterns and Entrepreneur patterns
o Academic research into entrepreneurs: Amar Bhide
o The writings of Mary Poppendieck, and others
o Planning vs. prediction
o The last responsible moment
o Essential concepts of successful agility-- and entrepreneurship
o Implications of the entrepreneurial thinking model for Agile leaders

Student Comments: These are the actual written comments from the students:

"...The presenter was a very good listener. It makes so much sense now why some get Agile and others do not. "

"...Excellent. Thanks for investing the time and effort in us. "

"...I really enjoyed the session and wish it was longer. Adding additional Agile terms (spike, refactor, test first etc.) could improve presentation "

"...Good stuff! Can't wait for the book!! "

"...Alt-tabbing B/w slide pages docs should be smoother, but the insights were VERY compelling "

"...Great presentation. Honest and open. More graphic visuals would engage the right brain! "

"...Was a little weak on Agile (XP specifically) ...but the entrepreneurial part was excellent! "

"...Enjoyed the session. Perhaps too much material for 1.5 hours !!"

"...This subject should be a keynote. Handouts made a big difference--thanks!"

"...Very well delivered! Very believable speaker!! "

"...Great job Mr. Mezick, it was worth my time Thank You (K.J) "

"...This is the best session ever! "
