Creating a value-driven culture may seem easy on the surface, but it is fraught with dangers such as, Agile seen as banal and pointless, unattainable due to resource, time, and cost constraints, or unrealistic "because that just won't work here." Agile teams are often asked to be "adaptive, flexible, or agile," but also asked to stick with a plan. A plan is from the traditional triangle based on scope, schedule and cost.

 

How do we reconcile these seemingly two incompatible directives? Join essayist, author, educator, and lecturer Perry McLeod as he explores the Agile Mindset and practical solution for transition from a traditional Brick-and-Mortar business environment to one which is empirical, self-determined, and organized, and most of all motivated to succeed on Wed, Nov 15, 2017 at The Windermere Manor Hotel & Conference Centre, 200 Collip Circle, London, ON N6G 4X8.
