Agile tour stuttgart 2013: Scrum and agility - Enjoy the journey

5,130

Published on

Stuttgart, October 16 2013. 100 enthusiast people gathered to listen to presentations and share ideas on Agile.
I gave a closing note about Scrum, and how to look beyond Scrum and software development, to Enterprise Agility.
Core message said that both are about a journey, more than about a goal.
