Agile Expectations vs. Reality
Have you tried implementing Agile within your organization and experienced challenges, or maybe you're not seeing the results you expected? Have you defined outcome success measurements that are meaningful and adaptable? We often see teams look outward to identify the source of these issues, when really, we need to look in the mirror to identify the true cultural roadblocks holding us back from reaping the full benefits of agility.
In this session, the MATRIX Agile Practice will share our experiences over the last 10 years across Agile Adoptions and Transformations within various industry sectors. We will discuss some of the challenges and problems with Agile Adoption and Transformation journeys and the resolutions we have seen work for successful Agile Implementations.
- Hear real-life success stories from agile organizations
- Examine anti-patterns that may be contributing to your Agile failures
- Learn how to remove common Agile roadblocks
- Explore the internal mind shift required across organizations to truly embrace the collaborative culture of agility in order to realize its benefits
This event is for all delivery team members, Project Managers, Program Managers, Portfolio Managers, Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, Product Owners, both IT and Business-side Directors and Managers, Executives, or anyone in the process of an Agile adoption or who may be experiencing a less-than-expected Agile adoption experience.
