Details:

It’s very common for established companies to perform some sort of Agile transformation. Quite often this involves hiring a consultant, giving a crash course on Agile and typically Scrum, and then suddenly mandating teams to work in that way. Development teams are restructured and processes are put into place. Does this really work though?

About the speaker:

I offer my thoughts on the topic and use some case studies from my own experiences on how I feel it’s best to get development teams aboard trying to be Agile. I also touch on what it means to work bottom-up rather than top-down and how you can use it to facilitate change in your teams.
