How purely should a team follow their chosen agile process?

If you've ever struggled with holding the line on practices that don't support your agile journey, or you feel like most agile processes are too rigid and -need- to be modified; join us for an in-depth lunchtime discussion.

You've just started your agile transformation, or perhaps a couple of years into it, then feel the tug back into the way things have "always been done." The arguments seem logical. Should you change your process to match your company or should you stick to your agile process? What disadvantages are there for making Agile fit into a company’s needs?

Maybe you are doing project work instead of product work. Perhaps your industry is heavily regulated or hardware centric. It's unclear how pure agile would fit your situation. Is ‘some’ Agile better than none or is it dangerous? How do you identify when you are losing the benefits of Agile as you try to adapt it to your situation?

Or possibly you are just the opposite, you've been successful when others were sure agile wouldn't work! Come and learn from your peers about when and how to protect your agile practice.
