Swarming: The Birds and the Bees and Agile

by Tom Perry and Dhaval Panchal

In this Agile 2008 conference presentation, Tom Perry and Dhaval Panchal discuss an animal behavior, “swarming”, as analogy for Agile teams.

Swarming, a collective behavior that emerges from a group, is evaluated in order to better explain Agile teamwork. Learn how flexibility to a changing environment, overall group power, and self-organization are all characteristics of this behavior. Includes an overview of problems and solutions.
