# 1: 15 years of evolution, from Waterfall to Agile DevOps. What fits better in your environment?
Waterfall, DSDM, Prince2, ASAP, Lean, Agile, Scrum, Kanban, Scrumban, DevOps, BizDevOps ... just a list of methods and concepts used to organize work, but does it matter which methods or concepts you apply at all ? Based on practical examples, I will guide you through the various methods, their strengths and weaknesses, to jointly determine which method fits best in the SAP environment in which you operate.
# 2: DevOps in the SAP environment. Loose bag or step forward
Everyone is talking about Agile, DevOps etc. The discussions about the method sometimes take almost religious forms. Is it just a hype, or does it provide the added value that your customer desires. And how does that fit into the SAP World? Is it different, is it the same? We will try to give the answers to these questions in the talk.
