I cannot WAIT to attend and report back to the arts community!
Agile New England is hosting an annual conference called Agile Games in Boston April 19-21, 2012. One of the main speakers will discuss how the software industry needs to function more like theater, planning its product line-ups and releases more in sync with its “audience” tastes and capacity for engagement!
This is an exciting moment, when the start-up business world is looking at the arts world to borrow ideas and refine its practices. In looking to transform the world of work, Agile proponents understand that being people-centric makes exceptionally good business sense. Deep symbiosis between the maker of a product and its user will create better “fit,” better value and, it is hoped, a better world!
Please stay tuned for updates on my plans to cover the Agile Games for the arts community. It should be a rich conversation, and I hope you will be inspired to be a part of it.
