Have you ever wondered why, if Agile is such a good idea, people are resisting it so much? What’s the reason that your bosses agree to it when you explain it, but fail to change their behavior later on? Why people revert to their previous state when you stop pushing them on the right direction? Why it’s so difficult to convince clients about trying Agile? Above all, why everyone is OK with change, as long as it’s ‘others’ the ones who change, not them?
For most of us, the problem is not to understand burn-downs, story points or user stories, but to make change happen in our organizations and stick it to people’s mind. Join this talk to understand more about how and why change – any change – happens or fails in any kind of human group, how to define and assess corporate culture and – hopefully – how to hack it for profit and fun (oh, well, and for everyone’s happiness too).
