 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Sarah Sheard

"You will never reduce, in my mind, the objective complexity. It’s going to be worse next year than it is. But, you can reduce the effect of complexity in terms of our ability to deal with it. "

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Christopher J. Alberts

Agile Methods in Air Force Sustainment

 Jeffrey Smith (Microsoft)

Eileen Wrubel

"Those core practices are there. They may be called something different. But, all of the teams that we observed are working from product backlogs and sprint backlogs. They are using burn-down charts to communicate. They all engage in release planning and sprint planning. They all engage in demos and retrospectives. And, they are all using things like a daily or a weekly Scrum and Scrum meeting. "

Dr. Anind Dey

"About two years ago we got some funding to look at how can we more effectively share information in a group of soldiers. We developed a data model that would encapsulate the mission, role, and task of those soldiers. As we started sharing information, we started realizing that we can queue on the numerous sensors in mobile devices to do an even better job of delivering information.  "
