Event Synopsis:

Many organisations start implementing Agile in a cultural context that is mostly non-Agile. This often creates a significant number of tensions and frictions that the teams adoption Agile are not fully aware of and that can be mitigated using Kanban.

Jose will discuss how we can Kanban to successfully introduce Agile principles and practices in non-Agile organisations, why and how Agility can help businesses significantly improve their results and what are some of the most surprising business performance metrics that we can improve using modern management methods.

Feedback from this talk include:

"I have completely changed my thoughts on bringing upstream people into this with us."

"I took away many invaluable points that my colleagues and I can work on together."

"We're already pretty Agile and applying lean principles, but I still got a huge amount out of your talk and feel very inspired"
