Beyond Agile


Published on

This talk presents some innovative concepts on deep people dynamics that influence the responsiveness to change of your Agile/Lean process, the efficiency of your team and ultimately your project’s success.

Who’s already using Agile/Lean will get new insights on what makes an efficient team; who’s evaluating that transition will better understand its cultural implications.

Main topics: principles of Organizational Systemic (not to be confused with systems theory); relational nature of popular Agile/Lean methods; leadership levels.
