“Skills shortage” is an awkward phrase, but the issue it describes is relevant for many companies. Finding the employees you need is hard. Next, you want to keep them. Money alone doesn’t make them happy. Knowledge workers expect more from a job than "just" being paid well. Attractive work environments allow their employees to work autonomously.

(Deutsche Version, s. u.)

Berlin, 11 June 2012 – Agile methods and agile development of software and hardware bring great flexibility, whilst being leaner than traditional models. Instead of defining the full details of a project in advance via sets of specifications, under the agile approach it is only the next key stage that is targeted. The individual stages (sprints) rarely last more than two weeks, meaning that it is easy to maintain an overview at all times. Adaptations – which are necessary on all major development projects as they progress – can be implemented more easily using this empirical approach than using ...
