Helping your Waterfall flow faster
A perfect world _might_ be agile. But what do you do with reality? What can you do against the immense inertia of a well-worn Waterfall Culture? Platitudes aren't enough! Failed agile transformations are proof of that. The change must be deeper. It must be actions. But who can do this?! You can. In fact, if you see the need, you are in the single best position to make the change! You can demonstrate or derive the principles of agility right before their very eyes! It isn't an easy road, but let me show you how you can start! Are you willing to try?

- Learn what the 'MVP' of agile is
- Learn to articulate your organization's challenges in ways which enable experimentation
- Learn ways to demonstrate the agile principles through value-added actions within the existing culture
