This Month we're honored to have Adam Light facilitating: Change is Hard! Lessons Learned from Enterprise Agile Transformation

Fast moving SAAS businesses use agile methods natively. The recently-published PMI Agile Practice Guide shows there is broad understanding of agile practice fundamentals. Yet agile transformation continues to struggle in traditional organizations. What lessons can we draw after 15 years of mainstream experience? Come share your own experiences and gain a higher-level perspective on the difficult work of leading Agile change in an established company.

Your guide for this conversation will be Adam Light. Adam led his first agile transformation as the director of a traditional PMO. His experience made him a believer in Agile. And he has since spent nearly ten years helping technology leaders lead change and overcome challenges to make their traditional organizations more productive, innovative, and humane.

Thanks to The Standard for providing the venue and to Adam for leading this discussion
