Event Synopsis:

The session will include a number of practical tips for teams running scrum, kanban, XP (or a blend of techniques) on how to move beyond the mechanics of Agile processes in order to maximise productivity. I’ll look at the importance of the unofficial “Pastor of Fun” role in an agile team as well as discussing the spectrum of agile governance available, from PRINCE2 Agile through to The Lean Startup.

For those interested in running leaner agile projects or how The Lean Startup movement could help your organisation, we’ll go through a practical example of launching a successful product using Kanban in LeanKit.
