Journey to become Agile is very challenging. Join our meetup to learn and understand common pitfalls that companies encounter and how can we avoid those.

Agile manifesto values responding to change more than following a plan. Transforming to be ‘Agile’ is the ability to keep adapting ourselves in a way to better respond to change. People often think we are Agile if we follow Process X, if we use tool Y, if we deploy Z times a day and so on. If it were so easy, we should be able to just Google it. The reality is, there is no formula. Beyond the 8 largest errors in any transformation [1] and several other resources[2, 3], in this session we will talk about some of the practical challenges that individuals, teams and organizations should watch out for, while embarking on a transformation journey.
