Presentation: "Why don't we learn!?"
Wednesday 10:35 - 11:35
St James’s Suite, Fourth Floor
Many enterprise agile transformations start out with the very best of intentions. We get the values, we understand the principles, and some of the practices even start to make a bit of sense. But there's one technique that underpins it all and can very much be the difference between success and failure.
It's not something you can buy, it is hard earned but you start doing it from the first moment you draw breath. Organisations (and people) can be staggeringly good at it sometimes, and downright appalling at others. Worse, it can be the reason your competitor beats you to the punch, whether you're both agile or not.
The problem is we often don't realise and are unable to put a value on this killer skill, but if we did we'd be ready for an agile transformation, or any change, every time.
In this talk Russ Miles, CEO of OpenCredo, will talk about how to understand, put hard value on and then maximise that killer skill to give you the best chance of success as you go through your agile transformation. The killer skill is 'learning'.
