Main Conference Day 1 - Thursday February 27th, 2020

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

2:15 PM Challenging the belief that… Research + Highly Specialised Teams + Vehicles/Hardware != Agile

·         Researchers sometimes spend years solving the world’s most complex problems. How can the research be supported, while enabling cross functional development efforts?
·         Highly specialized individuals are in a similar situation, do you really want them to slow down to learn other areas of the system that could take years to grok?
·         Layer in vehicles and hardware with long lead times to the points above, and you have yourself some really interesting problems to solve with an Agile mindset!
·         During this session we’ll be discussing how to transform vertical/siloed organizations through managing the overall program to leverage the benefits of the Agile and Scrum
