I have been a scrum master, release train engineer, agile coach and now the Director for Agile Delivery. I’ve lead teams, lead transformations, trained and collaborated with every level from team member to company president. In my 7 years doing and being agile (actual years not time where I was doing it ‘before it was called agile”), I have undergone a transformation i never saw coming - Agile purist to agile minded. How did this transformation happen? Why was it critical to my success? This session is all about a personal journey through all the stages of agile including the raw bumps and bruises along the way. Take a shortcut from my wins and my failures and learn how to be successful in corporate america agile - first hint; it has nothing to do with the scrum guide.
