Presentation: “ Mastering agility and ensuring successful software delivery" - Colin Deady

During our presentation, Colin Deady - Capita IT professional services - will help you identify the cultural changes that your organisation needs to undertake to generate real business value with Agile. Embracing the agile culture requires for many stakeholders to change their views, processes, documentations, etc. Waterfall or standard top-down methodologies have been the norm in organisations for decades and changing can be a challenge...
