Event description

From Wagile to Agile: Making a Successful Shift to Agile using Change Management 

A growing number of organizations are embracing Agile processes to improve delivery, increase speed and enhance customer and employee experience. However, research shows that the people dimension is the most challenging to get right when making the full transition to Agile. In this session, Mumtaz will walk you through key lessons from organizations that have successfully made the shift and the change management best practices for creating a wildly successful transition.
