About the Program

Agile software development is a growing phenomenon that has resulted in improved software quality and on-time delivery. But just what is Agile, and how can it improve software service delivery? Some of the concepts, obstacles, and pitfalls of Agile are considered in the context of John Laub’s personal experiences with applying Agile principles in the family, including bottom-up idea flow, constant feedback, and accountability, and how those lessons translate to the workplace. Also considered is a surprising feature: what can be learned from allowing kids to pick their own punishments?
