Agile / Lean Practitioners Meetup: Two Biz Funk Teams Go Lean: An Audience-Wide Retrospective
This is a presentation on how two Business & Functional (Biz Funk) teams -- an Editorial team and a Marketing Team -- used Agile practices to execute their projects and work. This presentation was followed by a panel discussion where team members and stakeholders talked about what prompted them to try it and how it worked for the execution teams, while sharing the good, the bad, and the future.
