How to move away from wagile

By Kevin Miller & Tommy van Schaik

traditional thinking, adopting a hybrid of the two methodologies is worse than just using one.

Tommy van Schaik

Born and raised in the Netherlands, Tommy van Schaik found out early on that his natural habitat was between business and IT. After graduating with his masters of Business Process Management & IT, he started his career as a Dutch Airforce Officer. After a beautiful ex-pat adventure in the United States, he switched to civilian life and moved back to Europe to continue his career in the Aerospace and Defence domain. Currently, he is working as an IT project manager for the NATO Communication and Information Agency. If he has any spare time left between family, work and being a Pluralsight author, Tommy tries to stay fit either in the ring or on the basketball court.

Tommy is of the firm belief that the agile is the result of a perfect storm in which products (software) became more complex, while at the same time, the explosion of the Internet allowed multiple ideas to compound into a more effective and efficient way to create products.
