Wednesday, November 11, 2020 - 11:45am to 12:45pm

Partnering Up – Giving Leaders the Limelight of Transformation

Add to calendar
Thursday, November 12, 2020 - 1:15pm to 2:15pm

As agile coaches, we feel the frustrations with teams and leaders, we see the pain points in the organization, and we want to lead people to a more lean-agile future. Moreover, agile coaches may put the weight of the entire transformation on their own shoulders.
