Published on

The introduction of re-vers-ify at the Agilia 2017 conference in Oloumoc (Czech Republic).
About re-vers-ify:
When working with people and organisations, I always revert to the simplest and most core basics of Scrum, regardless how Scrum has, or has not, been adopted, or the scale of operations. It takes a lot of imagination to picture Scrum being employed according to its design while exciting people greatly at the same time. 
Over and over I observe how imagination can set an organisation apart. I believe that any organisation can be re.imagined, re.vers.ified using Scrum, to exploit its intrinsic potential to innovate.
