Adjust. Learn. Grow. It's a process well known in Agile software development, and key to ultimate success.
As part of last week's Denver Startup Week, Bill Wood, Ping Identity's vice president of engineering, shared with entrepreneurs and engineering managers from the local startup community how Ping has built a foundation on Agile development for the past 10 years. In those years, Ping has grown from a start-up with one product and a few engineers to a multi-product, 80-person engineering locomotive. And he explained how Agile held everything together and insured the trains ran on time.

Along the way, Wood showed how Ping's corporate values and other traits were aligned with the company's Agile methods and how that contributed to overall success.
"My challenge to you is to understand your [company] values," he said. "They can be effective in how you lead and how you work as an engineer. Know your values."
