Speaker: Erin Beierwaltes – Skipstone Consulting
Why have so many agile attempts failed? What is that the unknown force that often makes it fall flat? Join us to explore the hardest part of agile. Culture and team dynamics and few ways to start consciously building a better culture instead of relying only on a framework.
Through a mix of system theories, cultural principles and business practices, Erin partners with businesses to find the right balance of product, process and people, to create a responsive and adaptive learning organization.
Erin has been working on organizational development for over 10 years, working with established Product companies and startups, to adopt "just enough" formal approaches to support high paced growth and change. She believes strongly in addressing the combination of product discovery (figuring out what to build), process (how to set up processes to build high quality products quickly), and people (how to create a great culture) to reach organizational level agility.
