The low hanging fruit is rotten: how Kanban and Scrum are destroying enterprise agility

My experience coaching agile teams has led me to the conclusion that the traditional approach to agile transformation is broken. While 10x improvements in delivery time are entirely possible, corporations spend much more than they need to training and coaching the wrong people in exchange for small gains. In this talk, I'll describe the types of problems that keep organisations from performing as well as they could and suggest appropriate interventions. It's time to stop hauling on tiny levers in search of dramatic change. I'll show you where the big levers are and how to move them.
