Agile Business

Program |TracksSpeakers

An agile approach continues to find advocates long after the hype was due to fade. For many, what started as a need to ensure parity with external ‘agile’ suppliers is now business as usual, but not necessarily usual for the organisation. Sustainably embedding agile in a traditional context, and especially where budgets and funding are concerned, holds back wider adoption.

Agile Business brings practitioners of agile approaches together to share their experiences of making the methodologies work beyond small companies or isolated units.

This track is for those looking to adopt agile practices, to enhance them or to further them within their organisation.
