Start asking the right questions

Have you heard that Agile is the way to go if you want to deliver two times faster and two times more? And would you like your team or organization to do just that? Sure you would!

Just, is it really important to deliver twice as fast and deliver twice as much of something? Our experience and that of the industry show that – no!

In the training, we will not focus and talk about “how to deliver two times faster and two times more of something”, but instead we will start with values and principles (not with processes), you will understand what drives Agile and “Where” and “Why” it works. This is how you will be able to avoid unsuccessful Agile implementation and find answers to the following questions:

We are not one of the many “experts” who will rush to your aid and offer Agile as a quick solution to all your problems. You will be able to be inspired by our experience – both successes and failures, and our knowledge from stories where we have participated ourselves and led Agile changes, both at the team and organizational level. This will help you find answers and ask the right questions.
