Agile Austin hosted Keep Austin Agile 2012 at the AT&T Conference Center on November 16, 2012. Agile can be hard. Getting it to stick can be even harder. To do it, you have to get beyond the practices and understand the principles behind them. And then to instill these principles within your organization. At Keep Austin Agile 2012, we focused on how to make this happen. Around 400 people joined us in exploring how to enable a culture of agility.
