Agile Transformations: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

schedule Mar 20th 10:30 - 11:15 AM place Grand Ball Room 1 people 115 Interested

Are the majority of agile transformations failing? Succeeding? Just sort of stumbling along? It’s really hard to tell. You hear a lot of promises and platitudes from consulting firms specializing in transformations, you read case studies that focus on the good and downplay the bad, and there’s a plethora of agile trainers who will certify that you’re a master, a professional, or an agile coach in just a few short days. Who do you trust to share with you what’s really happening in organizations making these transformations? What’s really working? What isn’t?
