Ron Quartel Talks FAST Agile

FAST Agile, brainchild of Ron Quartel, is a combination of Open Space, Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), and Story Mapping. After watching hundreds of participants use the Open Space format to self-organize at a major industry conference, Ron decided that such self-organization practices could also be applied to software development.

Rather than relying on control mechanisms like SAFe and LeSS, FAST Agile is a scalable Agile framework that relies on individuals and interactions along with pulling work in to teams. Utilizing a two-day Sprint, FAST Agile implicitly requires teams to break their work down into small chunks and to swarm the work in a Mob Programming fashion.
