The “Gotcha’s of Agile” – Mistake #9
with Patricia Tyre, PMP

The “Gotcha’s of Agile” – an 11 part series of invigorating discussion on the mistakes companies make when they embark on an Agile Transformation, and the best practices and personal observations to avoid them.

Join this highly engaging 11-part series focused on the “Gotchas” in Agile Transformations. Leveraging a 2019 global benchmarking survey commissioned by the University of Connecticut on the best practices and failures of Agile Transformations, this highly interactive program will focus on the major mistakes companies make when launching their Agile transformations.  Each of the 11 sessions will address a different theme discovered in the study and will ask participants to provide thoughtful solutions and personal experiences in relations to the session topic in separate break out rooms. Each break-out room will then share their insights with the rest of the audience for shared learning and group contribution to the greater body of knowledge. This program is especially valuable to Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters or those who are part of an organizational Agile transformation within their own company, or those wanting to hear how other companies are experiencing the transformation. Commitment to attend all 11 webinars is not required as each meeting in the series will be independent of each other.

This webinar will focus on mistake #9; “Too Much Focus on Reporting Tool”.
