Overcoming the challenges that stop “Genuine Agile”

Start the new year by helping overcome 9 main Agile Challenges that Giles Lindsay – an Enterprise Agile Consultant – has identified throughout his 25 years’ experience, working in large enterprises. You will explore whether what you are doing within your organisation is genuine agile, or whether it is simply agile theatre.

He poses the question “Is everything about agile, or is it only part of the whole picture?” He also asks the audience “What must we do to make genuine agile succeed within the organisation throughout 2020 and beyond?”

His talk revolves around 9 big and hopefully common challenges that we as agile champions may face in the workplace and what we should try to do to overcome them in allowing genuine agile to flourish. It also talks to the point of agile leadership being about behaviour and not just words

As a part of our upcoming meetup with Giles, we’re looking to gather some data around the Agile challenges that you and your companies commonly face.

If you have a spare minute, we’d love to get your experiences and thoughts via the survey below. Feel free to forward this to anyone else who may be interested as well!

Your response will help contribute towards a whitepaper that Giles will be publishing in Q2 2020.
