    Episode 20: Is it Time to Improve the Agile Manifesto? Part V

    Episode 20: Is it Time to Improve the Agile Manifesto? Part V

    This weeks guest is Nicolas Rossello, a Scrum Master & Project Manager at Santex. Rossello is  skilled in leading not only software development teams, but also other Scrum Masters. With a vast understanding of the big-picture impact of Agile methodologies and organizational processes. A strong programming knowledge contributes to his overall understanding of the project lifecycle and technical needs; this makes him a strong asset to the Santex team.

    As we come to the close of the Agile Manifesto podcast series, we found that when something as culturally important as the Manifesto exists, you might be able to rework it, but there’s nothing like the original. So, instead of an official change or update to the Manifesto, experts suggest you find the best way to apply it to your company, your team and yourself. If we apply this mindset to our individual situations and maintain an agile mindset instead of a strict code, perhaps the possibilities are limitless.
