Individuals, their interactions and communication are highly valued in Agile.

These values frequently find application in the form of big visible charts or information radiators.

Yet, in a lot of large, traditional organizations who have started their journey in Agile, the public display of information, uniformly accessible to all, is unsettling.

Through a “scary” analysis of the impact of the lack of transparency, I aim to build a really strong case for more transparency at the workplace.
