Nine Levels of Agile Hell... and How to Get Out!
The work done during an agile transformation can feel like a Sisyphean effort – if agile is the solution, then the work is very complex and full of pitfalls! BUT—do not abandon hope! In this talk, Dave Bujard and Chris Stemen will discuss nine circles of Agile Hell. Each Agile hell is an example of a problem that exists in many programs. Discuss the undercurrent issues that often are the cause… and how to deal with the underlying and surface issues. Bring your cell phones—you're going to need them. During the first five minutes, Dave and Chris will ask participants to prioritize their pain points via an interactive app. During the presentation, we will focus on the six agile hells closest to participants' experiences. Threaded throughout the presentation, participants will be engaged to poll their experiences as Dave and Chris convey specific real examples of “escaping” out of each agile hell—from agile coaches that Dave and Chris know. Learn to expand your toolbox of techniques to help your organizations in simple and achievable ways.
