Being agile is much more than applying some techniques to run software projects - it requires a commitment to adaptive leadership, a focus on delivering value fast, and a different understanding of what your organizations' portfolio should look like.
This webinar will investigate some of the key changes to becoming agile, with points learned from Thoughtworks' own journey, and the work we have done with clients around the world. It will be challenging and thought-provoking, providing you with some key aspects of change you can use to lead your organization on its journey.
