    BERTEIG Real Agility Series: How to Be Agile Without Scrum

    09 DEC 2019 - Online - Travis Birch

    Organizations adopt Scrum, SAFe and similar Agile methods because they believe that it will have a positive economic impact or “reward”.

    At some point there is a bargain and a deal is made: “Invest in and support this different way of working and increase your chances of reaping the reward that you seek.” The nature of enterprise is such that risks are taken in order to achieve desired rewards.

    So what is the Agile bargain? What are the risks? Depending on the nature of the enterprise, the risks with adopting Agile could be undesirable, untenable and even ruinous.

    Could there be a less risky path?

    Travis Birch, Partner at BERTEIG, brings his 10yrs+ experience with helping organizations achieve Real Agility to provide a provocative look at industry norms and what is actually possible with agility.
