Nigel Baker will be giving us a sneak preview of the session he will be running at the 2013 Scrum Gathering in Las Vegas.
Optimus Prime is Cool: Organisational Transformation and Transformer
Optimus Prime is a Transformer. Transformers are cool.
In this workshop we will use Optimus Prime, the transforming toy as a metaphor for organizational change and transformation.
We will humourously pull apart this metaphor and discuss whether "Transformation" is really the right word for what we put organizations through.
Truly, MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!
