This one weird trick will fix all your Agile problems
Have you had enough of reading 'Agile is Dead' blogs? Come along to this Agile Auckland Event where Anthony wants to enlist you in the fight to make Agile relevant again. This will include Anthony's theory on why common approaches to Agile miss half of the 12 principles and how this is the underlying issue behind many of the ranty blogs. Anthony will then introduce why a well functioning Product Management practice is absolutely essential to the success of Agile in your organisation. He might even give you some practical tips and tricks that you can use to start the resistance against bad Agile through the application of modern Product Management techniques! Little bit about Anthony: Starting out as an electronics and software engineer, Anthony began his journey into the world of Agile when he made the shift from Project Manager to Product Owner about 6 years ago at Fiserv NZ. More recently he moved to Orion Health to lead the Product Owner and Product Management practices, while doing his day job of Amadeus Platform Product Manager. In a couple of weeks he will begin a new adventure as Head of Product for Plexure. Anthony is also the lead organiser for the ProductTank Auckland Meetup group (, where those interested in Product Management can meet, collaborate and learn together, and occasionally cry on each others' shoulders.
