I had the great pleasure of participating at the premiere of the Agile Business Conference in Moscow. A long sold out event with 500 participants can be described as a successful premiere. My talk was about “Enterprise Agility” and I was speaking about how we helped a company with about 80 teams to work in an agile way. The exciting thing was that we had not begun to agilize the teams. This approach is only good for consulting companies, since you have to buy a lot of consultancy fees. We started at the level of top management and limited the number of work throughout the organization with the effect that more work was done faster and this with only minimal consultant costs. Nice!
My session was translated live in Russian and that alone was worth the trip. Sensational experience – you make a joke and one half of the hall starts laughing and five seconds later the other 🙂
The conference took place in the really cool venue “Digital October” and was very well organized from the beginning to the end. I just say that the whole spectacle ended with a whiskey party for all 500 people 🙂 Thanks to the ScrumTrek team for great support!
