Organization Agility

Organizational Agility: What's not in the book?

Monday November 5th, 2007 at 6pm

Presented by: Mary Poppendieck

Mary Poppendieck is the author of Lean Software Development and Implementing Lean Software Development, and is the industry's foremost thinker on applying lean principles to software.


So, you've got some cross functional teams, you're running in sprints, you're doing stand-ups - Awesome!!! Hm, but alas, it doesn't quite feel agile. What now?

In this session, we will listen to Mary Poppendieck talk about what sort of things her experience shows will help in this respect. Some examples of high performance cultures and where organizational change in thinking really occurred. What is involved in having such a change? What are those hidden fundamental organizational process and cultural changes that make the most positive impact?

The session is for all audiences, whatever your role in your software organization.

The talk will be interactive, with plenty of time for Q&A
