Come to this session to learn how to uncover and avoid agile feedback system dysfunctions in your organization.

Understand how to use simple and very effective visual boards and metrics to improve effectiveness of your agile feedback systems, and thereby, accelerate learning at individual, team and organizational levels, and get business benefits.
