Agile Development in Non-Agile Museum
“As agile website development product owners, we navigate between the development team and the museum bureaucracy in order to produce the best possible website for the audience to enjoy.” This is the scrum user story I and my colleagues at the Finnish National Gallery might write. During the development of the museum’s new website we have encountered issues arising from the clash of cultures and paradigms – and solved them. I present a selection of issues and their sometimes surprising solutions from our museum’s first ever agile development project.
