Have we crossed the chasm


Published on

In this talk, I try to provide a perspective on weather or not we have crossed the Chasm with Agile transformation. Based on a few surveys, I explore the current state of agile adoption across the industry and try to predict the kind of coaching/transformation needs that might come up in the near future.
