Using Agile Techniques to lead your startup and Scale-up your Company

Leading a business can feel really far removed from the skills we use in a project or development environment. But are there ways in which those of us who have come from technology are at an advantage when it comes to building out a company? In this talk, Iyas, who has led technology companies and teams from a 2 person startup to over 500 people, talks through a process and structure to start and scale a company, and how he's used processes borrowed (or stolen!) from Scrum and Kanban to help leaders of startups and scaleups to manage their businesses.
