Organisational anti-patterns - things organisations do that make agile delivery much harder

10–12th May 2017 at thestudio

A 60 minute Experience Report by:

Ian Cartwright


About this Experience Report

Based on 14 years of delivering and consulting on agile, this session describes some anti-patterns that I keep running into. It seems every organisation has at least one or two - some have the full set! I'll describe each anti-pattern, explain why it hurts delivery and then outline some suggestions for what you might want to do differently.
