These slides supported the session I ran at The Mobile Academy London. The session was to introduce Agile and Lean practices. The session was based on principles which should have set the scene for the attendees to use in their workplaces or understand Agile some more. We discussed Scrum as an example framework and the value of inspect and adapt processes to support startups and enterprises.

I was considering to record myself speaking over these slides to give it more context. If you would be interested, let me know and if I get more that 5 requests, I'll do it.
