Agile transformation is now a fundamental part of our organisations, our working lives and our industry in general, whether it is an explicit and formally managed change programme or whether the change is emergent and evolutionary.

It is in this spirit that you are cordially invited to attend an exclusive Meetup at which we will be discussing Agile Transformation from three distinct viewpoints.

Our passionate and influential panel of speakers will deliver insightful and illuminating talks covering “6 key aspects of a successful agile transformation”, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast, lunch & dinner” and “The Real User Driven Approach”.

Their talks will be followed by an open Q&A session which should facilitate an energetic and stimulating debate between the floor and our guest panel.

There will then be an opportunity to network over drinks and pizza.

We are absolutely delighted to bring these three leading speakers together for what promises to be a fascinating and informative evening.
