    • My personal agile heat perception HeatMay 2011 Oct 2011 April 2012 Today
    • Lesson learned● dont apply throughout the entire company at once● focus on a small team and go deep (instead of broad)● send key persons to CSM course● a team needs a shared goal● It is hard to find a good PO
    • Do we do good Scrum? Noooooooooooooo!
    • And the best thing is! I dont blame Scrum/Agile for it.I blame me for it cause I spend more timeon other things than agile transition at the moment. So I have to get better.
