Most development teams in the game industry claim to use “Agile” when it gets to project management methods. But what exactly is meant with this term? Is it yet another buzz word? Are SCRUM and “Agile” the same? And is “Agile” in itself a method at all? In his talk Ralf will give an overview on different project management methods, ideas and philosophies. He will explain the differences and similarities behind methods usually referred to as Agile, SCRUM, ScrumBut, Lean or XP – and if there’s maybe more. Ralf will also show common pitfalls and traps when following certain hypes and why game development is a different kind of a beast compared to the traditional IT industry.
