Getting to True Agility: Beyond Just Agile Practices

MEETUP
December 14, 2019
Nagarro, Gurugram

About The Event

While most companies today have at least some teams following the agile ways of working but agile adoption in majority of cases has been limited to simply following the practices of Scrum or Kanban or some other framework. Limited adoption leads to limited benefits and in some cases, is even counterproductive, leading to resentment and a tendency to fall back to the older ways of working.

 

In this meetup, we will delve into factors that will fuel your agile adoption strategy. Also, find out how teams and companies can go beyond just the practices and reap more significant benefits from the agile ways of working.

 

Key takeaways from the event:  

  • Discover the secret sauce for a successful agile setup

  • Know the role of managers and leaders in agile teams

  • Understand the anti-patterns observed with agile implementation

  • Learn about the barriers in agile adoption with real-life scenarios and solutions

  • Gain insights about ineffective agile implementation through a case study
