Power of Agile

Matt Anderson, Angela Metoyer & Glenn Watson | 01:45 – 03:00


The path to agile is more of a journey than a destination. At Grange, this has definitely been the case over many years. Join us as we discuss OUR reality of an agile transformation; the beginnings, the successes, the challenges, and the future. We won’t be sharing ‘best practices’, secret sauces, or silver bullets. We will share an honest overview of the Grange journey, including what has and hasn’t worked, the ups and downs, the victories and the defeats.
