  20. 20. Confidential20 Lessons Learnt Agile should not be an IT driven initiative only. Take the business along. Transformation agents – coaches and delivery managers play a vital role to agile adoption and success. Gemba leadership is key. Keep sharpening the axe. Build assets, implement incremental processes towards Devops, pursue in-sprint testing and automation, encourage democracy and harmony Systems Team is significant to keep enhancing the principles, procedures, guidelines, assets and thereby keep the platform stable. Scrum Ceremonies like ART Planning, SoS, Retro, stand-ups, etc. make a big impact in identifying the impediments and their resolution Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes
