"You will gain a deeper knowledge of the transition process so that you can either do it yourself or hire and manage agile coaches in an effective, productive manner.
During this presentation you will find the short version of your questions like:
Why transition to agile? How to use Values for an agile transition? How to create a fluent transition? When to train, coach or manage?
