How is it that some agile adoptions and
transformations are successful and some fail? Is it hype or
something that really works? Is your Organization struggling
or thriving with agility?
In this engaging presentation, two enthusiasts will share their journey and expertise on Agile practices, adoptions and transformations. While some welcome change, others resist it. We will touch upon the Scrum framework very lightly.
At the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:
