Agile - the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Many people are struggling with Agile Adoption either as internal champions or external coaches. Agile is such a great thing, why doesn't it work everywhere? In this talk, Michael will discuss why Agile is more like a mind-shift than a process and the role culture plays in inhibiting or supporting adoption. As usual, there will be hands-on activities as well as zen-style presentation so buckle in for a talk that will forever change the way you think about Agile and eliminate the blindspot that is limiting your success. (Ya, I know you don't think you have a blindspot - that's why it's called a blindspot).
