Description

In this session we'll take an in-depth look at our own Agile knowledge and measure that against our peers and some of the leading industry experts. Then we'll drive into how this differs from our own expectations, attempt to gain an awareness of our faults, and explore some tools and techniques for improving them. We'll finish off with some ideas/options that can help us focus and push our improvement continuously forward.
