Early agile adopters usually start with Scrum.  Everything goes well, iterations are smaller, and work becomes manageable, but somewhere along the line developers get left behind.  Roshan Uttangi believes that developers need more power in the agile process in order to stay involved.  Uttangi also says organizations shouldn't fear augmentation of their process with facets from other methodologies, such as XP and Kanban.  In this interview, Roshan will also talk extensively about his experience in fixing problems for distributed development teams.

Roshan V. Uttangi has over fifteen years of software industry experience and is the Product Manager for ALM practice at Wipro Consulting Services.  His knowledge extends to methodologies like RUP and Lean.
