Some notes from the conference

A really great talk by Steve Denning

  • Agile is a mindset: without the mindset, there is no benefit
  • Genuine agile is delighting the customer
  • Huge change: the priority needs to shift completely from shareholder value to customer value
  • Customer is missing from the org chart
  • Motivation is: change or die
  • Agile can be fragile: one manager can destroy 10 years of progress in 10 minutes
  • No time to loose: 7 years for Microsoft to move towards genuine agile
  • Requires strong leadership at all levels that are obsessed with customer value in order to fight the entrenched mindset
