Agile Manchester 2015 - Can Agile save a sinking ship?
It’s one thing to be Agile when everyone is on board and excited to be there, or when there’s a new project and a clean slate. What about when things are going as wrong as they possibly can - and have been going wrong for a very long time? Is there anything that Agile can offer in these situations?
In my presentation/workshop, I related some of the battles I faced as a PM trying to integrate agile processes in order to help lead a disheartened team out of a pretty dire situation. The participants learned how to help the stakeholders discover - and accept - their minimum viable product, and learned that sometimes "We learned a lot, we got paid, and no one died" is as close as you can get to success.
