Agile meets Audit: Meeting Information Security Requirements with Agile Teams
The launch of agile42 in North America follows nearly five years of successfully consulting companies on process improvement, specifically on adopting agile approaches to software development, and training and coaching teams on agile methods like Scrum. During that time, agile42 has developed a tailored approach to agile change, and now North American companies in Canada and the United States can benefit from this proven and highly successful approach to consulting, training and coaching people to become agile by the combination of management involvement, knowledge transfer, on-the-job coaching and hands-on tool support.
I am one of the founders of agile42. Even though I am not an engineer I
