Learn practices for teams and their stakeholders to develop the right products, deliver faster, increase quality, and create happy high performing teams!
Many organizations are going through agile transformations. They are implementing Scrum and maybe large scale agile frameworks like SAFe, LeSS or DAD, hoping to better serve the IT needs of the business and to develop products that satisfy their customer’s needs.
Unfortunately those transformation do not always live up to the agile promise of delivering faster, better products that customers really like or reducing the IT costs. As a result, many organizations are not getting the expected business benefits out of Agile.
Replacing processes doesn’t make an organization Agile. You need to apply agile or lean practices, with an agile mindset. Be able to pick those practices that help your teams and stakeholders to do a better job. Practices that you can use in the planning game and your daily stand-ups with your Scrum and Kanban boards, for your product reviews/demos and in your agile retrospectives.
