The GROWS™ Method is a set of practices and approaches to integrate effective software development and learning within an organization. It's based on several key concepts:
Grow code, grow skill. Because if you're not growing, you're dying.
"I especially like the GROWS fixed-rate understanding of team velocity. I've used that idea on a project where I was able to show that given our task list and our current velocity (reported daily on a wall calendar), we needed help. We got it, and I was then able to show we were on track."
—Mike Bonar, Victoria, BC
"The themes that hit closest to home for me were aligning my work with Executive Vision/Initiatives, permitting Experimentation and tracking my growth through a Learning Journal. I recommend learning how the GROWS™ Method can help your team grow through the application of Agile and Lean methodologies and beyond."
—Harold Meder, RTP, NC
"Best presentation of the conference. Best articulation of the usefulness, right use, and limitations of agile."
—An Introduction to GROWS, Agile Development Conference East
"Spread this information to masses—this is what the real world needs"
—Zemira L, GROWS Tutorial
