Description: The universe was born out of a big bang. Adopting agile at scale produces comparable amounts of energy, especially if you do it the “safe” way. Because energy does not simply disappear, it will make its way across your organization, crushing everyone that dares to stand on its way.

There is at least one approach to scaling Agile that doesn’t include creating a whole universe of problems to deal with – the Kanban way. Join this session to learn more about Kanban at scale and the benefits it brings when embraced on a global level.
