Talk: Sustaining Agility after the Coaches Leave
Transitioning to agile is hard. It involves learning new techniques, thinking in a different way, and stepping out of your comfort zone. No wonder so many agile transitions revert back to previous ways over time. A change in management or a loss of the agile champion is often a catalyst for this setback. This talk describes several mechanisms to help counteract these forces, and how to incorporate them into your organization. Through exercises and discussions of real world experiences, this talk provides guidance on how to create sustainable agility.
