Few words about Cyprus Agile and Innovation

Cyprus Agile and Innovation is a community that aims to bring together all the professionals of the IT industry and not only, to share their Agile experience. It is also the mean for many others that wish to learn more about Agile.

There are many definitions around the internet related to what is agile. For us agile is professional development, expertise, customer value, innovation, culture and mindset. Since agile manifesto with all the various methodologies is so focused on maximizing the customer value and early delivery why not implementing it everywhere. Nowadays, customers want unique products, want to have them fast and to fulfill their needs to the maximum.

Work in short iterations, deliver more often and build the product with the customer. Invest your time with the customer to experience the solution/product and provide feedback and adopt and respond to those feedback accordingly. This the agile way. Respond to the changes fast enough that will deliver fast enough the solution/product to the customer.

Agile Manifesto is considered to be one of the most popular frameworks for many organizations around the world. It is still fresh in Cyprus but we have seen many companies transforming to Agile. That will give us the opportunity to bring all the professionals together and share their experience and learn.
