Agile is about helping businesses and people embrace change and complexity. An agile business implementation can also be one of the most difficult cultural changes an organization will experience. Connecting how a business can gain value from an agile implementation is important to the implementation's success. Want to be a key change agent and ready to prepare your organization to inspect and adapt quickly?
This session is focused on those looking to take agile principles beyond software development. If you are an internal agile champion looking to expand the agile footprint within your business or new to agile and just beginning your transformation you will come away with key take away items to get you moving down the right path.
