Abstract: Agile has a big elephant in the room – Transparency makes people uncomfortable. This is one reason why many people and organizations struggle with successfully using Agile practices. This presentation will show the importance of considering how to best interact with the culture of your workplace as a critical success factor to Agile adoption. We’ll also dive into some common personas that we see when change happens and empirical process shines light on bad behavior and tempers or “red hats” start to flare. After acknowledging the elephant, we will discuss some of the ways to create more organization success and adoption of Agile.
