Business Agility Lab

Open Daily

10:30 - 12:00 & 14:00 - 16:00

Did you know that over half of Agile teams have issues with development and business people working together effectively? A core principle behind the Agile Manifesto is that they must do so daily throughout their project. Without adopting the Agile practice of daily collaboration,
organizations struggle to deliver high customer value.

In this space, we will have daily events and mentoring run by business leaders who understand the benefits of Agile and how it is adopted across the entire company.
