Is it easier to transform an existing culture to agile or build one from scratch? Menlo Innovations’ CEO Richard Sheridan will share two tales of Agile transformation. The first occurred when Sheridan was a VP of a 30-year old technology company and he transformed his existing team by adopting Extreme Programming. The second occurred two years later, when he chose entrepreneurship and started a new company using these same practices. True Agile adoption is hard. This talk will explore three barriers to Agile transformation: the executive team, the tech team, and Sheridan himself.
