What leaders need to know about Agile

Agile Advice

No one can deny that they are not impressed when a sharply dressed leader bounds onto the stage at a conference and proceeds to use impressive statistics to back up his or her claims that ‘if we just did this, then the world would be a better place’ Unfortunately, reality is rarely as static as those brief moments of exuberance.
