They started off by presenting “the way it used to work”, highlighting an older product development cycle from the 1990s that had very strictly defined dev phases, including a 10-12 week integration cycle – yikes! When they decided to implement Agile on a more recent project they broke up their 3-5 year dev cycle in 6 week
