174 views

Published on

My presentation from Agile ME 2018, Dubai March 10th, about how Agile can be so much more than just a process we follow blindly in order to “certify” ourselves as being fully agile – it’s a mindset and a culture, and utilized and empowered the right way we can gain value as individuals in our every day of work, even beyond working with IT, projects and iterations.

In the session, I talked about the true power behind the Modern Agile mindset, and shared how this new approach to agility can help uncovering better ways of getting awesome results.
