Many teams have tried to implement agile software practices and failed. When you read about it, It sounds so easy. What happened?

Janet Gregory will share some of the lessons she has learned when working with teams that help agile teams be successful. She will talk about what to avoid, what is critical, and some basic practices that can make the difference between success and failure. One example of a critical practice is using the whole team approach, and what happens when your team keeps your test team separate.
