In this talk international best selling author Clarke Ching will show you how to overcome the #1 and #2 blockers hobbling most Agile (project) teams. They cause delays, force rework, and trap enormous amounts of business value inside your projects. Both blockers live outside IT - #1 is diluted Product Ownership and #2 is C-level skepticism - and many teams give up trying to overcome them, and focus on being efficient not effective.

Clarke will share three startling insights that help you "sell agile" while barely needing to mention agile. One insight is that a lot of our colleagues in "the business" buy in to the gist of Agile, but don't like it because it makes their life harder. Clarke will show you how to stop pushing "your" Agile solutions and instead solve your Product Owners' and their bosses' problems.

If you don't know much about Agile project management - this is an event you should not miss!

This presentation will be followed by an opportunity for networking over light refreshments.
