4.11 Tailored TWG Techniques and Lessons at BOND
Let us now discuss a few more key techniques used at BOND in conducting the TWGs to document and deploy Agile processes along with a few lessons we learned to help the TWGs run more effectively. Among these techniques and lessons you will see more examples of asking questions and digging leading to more typical Agile "how-tos" that often just needed to be documented. Some are examples where documentation and minor additional behavior changes were required.8
