Join us for an informative, engaging and interactive evening with some of the key figures in the world of Agile. Based on the format of the popular BBC topical debate programme, this event features 6 thought leaders and industry experts who will answer questions put to them by you – the audience. This is a great opportunity to learn about some of the Agile ‘war stories’ and lessons learned from practitioners experiencing the real-world challenges and successes it brings. This session is equally applicable to all those interested in the adoption of Agile. Whether you are new to it or a seasoned professional, there will be relevant ‘take-aways’ for all.
