Doing Agile is easy but being Agile isn’t

Authored by Gayathri Balyam

Being Agile is not only about adopting processes, tools, doing stand-ups, sprints, retrospectives / ceremonies and so on, but also about changing the organisational mindset and culture, delivering value early to customers and managing to deliver continuously.

The conference on Agile organised by Tesco is an attempt to bring various thought leaders, Agile practitioners and experts together. The idea is to help each other see through and relate to some of the most common challenges and find their solutions. The conference will be a great platfrom to see renowned speakers from the industry share their thoughts and experiences of transforming organisations. It will allow you to gather different perspectives from various people during the Panel discussion and will be an opportunity for everyone to learn, share and connect.

Here are the top 5 takeaways from Tesco Agile Conference 2016:
