Join us for a thought provoking presentation on #DarkAgile with internationally recognized agile expert, Allen Holub.

A few years ago, the death of agile was a meme. Agile was (and is still) being supplanted by #DarkAgile, agile in name only, with few of the benefits of the real thing. In a way, things have gotten worse. Agile has arisen as a zombie, eating the brains of the corporate world. #DarkAgile flies in the face of basic principles and does active damage.

Allen Holub will pinpoint where we've gone wrong and how to make it right. There is a way out!

All is not lost, though. There are organizations, some quite large, that are “doing it right” and reaping the benefits. We haven't fallen completely into Orwellian dysfunction.

In this talk, you'll learn:

  • What agile should be and contrasting it to that what it's become
  • How agile has been perverted
  • How we've gone wrong with agile and how to make it right
