Title: My Agile Journey: What I Learned About Agile That I Couldn’t Learn From a Book

Speaker: Chris Shinkle

Time/Room: 2:40 PM/Marquis

Abstract: Agile transformation, Agile adoption, Agile implementations... Topics discussed in many books, blogs and conference presentations. But what does it look like in real life? As many know, it’s not as simple as it sounds. Over the past decade, I have learned lots about implementing and adopting agile practices. Our journey has included many successes and some failures. I’ve experienced moving Agile practices from one team to many teams. I’ve seen the impact it's had on teams, culture, and clients. I've learned there’s more to building a great product than Scrum, SAFe, or any specific Agile methodology. Join me as I share my agile journey encompassing the last 13 years at SEP. I will discuss the introduction of Agile practices, the core concepts in an Agile implementation, the adoption of Lean principles, Kanban, Product Discovery, and innovating with Lean Startup. I’m confident these lessons will prove valuable for you too.
