Overcoming Common Pitfalls to Agile Adoption (Speaker: Tom Wessel)

Overcoming Common Pitfalls to Agile Adoption

As Organizations and individual teams adopt Agile, there are common road blocks encountered that impede them from realizing the full benefit of their Agile transformation.  

These key pitfalls may include things like:

• Lack of Business participation

• Working within a waterfall organization

• Transitioning to Just In Time requirements

• Regression Testing

• Diluting the Agile principles and practices

• Overcoming people's natural resistance to change regardless of the change

This session will cover these key pitfalls and provide proven techniques to help you overcome them.
