If you want to be successful at Agile Transformation —especially at scale—you’ll need more than Agile Coaches teaching your teams the ceremonies of Scrum or how to do SAFe and LeSS. Why?

By Susanne Madsen. I often run project management training sessions and workshops for people who manage projects.
