The story of an Adobe Executive experimenting with service agility

This is the story about Carly, Head of Business Consulting Services for Adobe APAC, and her crazy idea that instead of developing services with lots of upfront planning and powerpoint, we would co-design services with customers in small iterations.

We'll take you through the story of introducing a new approach within a successful, global, organisation. The highs, the lows, the struggle and the success.

Our proceeding workshop will have you apply the learnings as you redesign Carly's introduction of agile principles with the benefit of hindsight. You'll walk away with learnings and artefacts to apply those learnings in your own agile efforts.

We will talk through our story with photos and quotes from customers and colleagues.
