Agile isn't the goal - how to recognise what's going wrong

Wednesday 11:00am - 11:30am, Agile Day (Agile Day 1 Room)

These days it seems like everyone is implementing Agile or trying DevOps, creating squads and tribes or being SAFe. These ideas are all great, but they are only a means to an end, not the end itself. How do you know if what you're seeing should be expected? It's tough for organisations, large ones in particular, to recognise what they need to do to get the most out of being agile.
Not a talking head!
This interactive session will help you recognise what symptoms you're experiencing (or should look out for), what that indicates about your situation, and more importantly, learn 8 things you can do about it.
