Session Title : Right to left

Session Overview : What does a Lean-Agile delivery process look like? If you had to describe one, where would you start - "from the left", with a backlog of work to plough through, or "from the right", with needs met by working software? And does the difference in perspective matter?

The difference does indeed matter; we'll see that learning to describe and introduce Agile and its frameworks "from the right" brings considerable benefits. And it's not hard - we can all do it!

  22. 22. A proud member of the @asplake agendashift.com/right-to-left A thing is whole according to how free it is of inner contradictions. When it is at war with itself, and gives rise to forces which act to tear it down, it is unwhole. The more free it is of its own inner contradictions, the more whole and healthy and wholehearted it becomes.
