Truly Agile Teams Work Backwards “Working software is the primary measure of progress” is one of the principles behind the Agile Manifesto. At Amazon, we expand this a little, and say: “working software that benefits the customer is the primary measure of progress”. In this talk, we will explore how to make sure your working software makes an actual impact, while staying agile and focusing on what matters. Paolo Gianrossi is a software development manager, on a mission to make Alexa answer ever more questions. In other lives he also wore the program manager, engineer, and a few other hats. His favourite language is Ruby, his favourite editor is Emacs. He flies little airplanes and developed the algorithm for a mean carbonara.
