Mind the Dogma! - Helping others “be Agile"

Julian Holmes

Short talk - in English

Too often both individuals and organisations learn about Agile and decide to enact change, only to get caught up in trying to "do Agile” as opposed to “be Agile”. The difference, whilst subtle, can be hugely significant in the success of any delivery transformation exercise, and the mistakes that are made when people are asked to “do Agile” can be extremely damaging, often resulting in a delivery failure.

In this presentation, Julian will share his experiences of dealing with many an organisation who took the wrong approach, with a number of anecdotes highlighting the “bad smells” he uncovered, and what was required to address the mistakes.
