“If Agile is the solution, I want my problem back”
After more than 20 years of Agile practice I’m asking myself, how far have we come?
Some companies have an “Agile DNA” – almost everything just works there. In other companies, people are forced to be happy and don’t want it. Almost everywhere the focus of change and transformation in on processes on tools… Let’s take a loving, entertaining, and relentless look at how things are, how we got here, where we might go from here… and how things ought to be. Leadership is a never-ending topic. It’s always challenging to be a perfect leader in turbulent times. Olaf, as a leadership Guru will give you an interesting point of view.
