Insanity; it’s doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results. Improving as an organisation is hard. What is even harder? Continuously improving. Yet it is key to any Agile transformation as we challenge ingrained practices and rigid ways of working. How do we manage to do this?!

During this presentation, I will share the strategies I've used to introduce Retrospectives, Lean Coffee, Brown Bags, Team 1:1s, and Guilds in the trenches. All of these continuous improvement practices have fast tracked Agile transformations in the teams and organisations I've worked with. Implement these practices and you can go beyond Agile adoption too.
