About the Book

Many large scale agile transformations can be very cookie cutter implementations that feel very static and rigid. What if we could loosen things up a bit by incorporating some of the latest innovations in the agile community? Examples that come to mind are practices like dynamic re-teaming, mob programming, no estimates, and so on. Mixins are just that: practices that you blend in to customize your framework to better fit your needs. They provide an injection of creativity in terms of the practices that we use to define and guide large scale transformations.
