Podcast: Agile delivery - theory vs practice

Podcast: Agile delivery - theory vs practice

Agile started out as an alternative approach to software development and is now applied more widely to running other types of projects. But how does the theory of agile delivery differ to what it's like in practice?

In this episode of the DWP Digital podcast, we catch up with Barry Traish, Hannah Dell'Armi and Shafiq Porter from our Delivery practice who share their thoughts and experiences.

They discuss the common challenges agile teams face, the differences between agile in the public and private sectors, and share their advice to building a strong and sustainable agile team.
