Software is the new primal force. It drives every product, every business. As the world demands more software, organisations are meeting the challenge – by turning to Agile. After all, applications developed using Agile techniques have been shown to have three times the success rate of applications developed using more traditional methods. This talk will explore the elements needed to achieve organisational Agility, covering strategy, process and people. Karl Scotland is a versatile software practitioner with over 15 years of experience covering development, project management, team leadership, coaching and training.
