“Packing List for Your Agile Journey” Virtual Training
Gil Broza and 10 industry leaders share the key concepts they consider for an organization’s Agile journey.
You know that Agile is more than meetings, artifacts, and process. You know that an Agile journey bears more resemblance to Columbus’s voyage than to a drive around town. But what is actually involved in becoming Agile? Which aspects matter a lot more than others? And why is it that most organizations adopt Agile, but only a few seem to get the amazing results that were promised?
In this 10-hour virtual training, Gil Broza interviews 10 outstanding authors, mentors, executives, innovators, and practitioners. Every one of them has played a leading role in several successful Agile journeys.
You know some of these experts from books, conferences, and webinars. Other guests are accomplished practitioners who seldom speak publicly about their work. All of them are the real deal. And they have accepted Gil’s invitation to this platform to share their knowledge and experience with you. You will receive real, unbiased education.

This series of interviews was broadcast live between March 17 and 21, 2014. Here are a few of the rave testimonials we’ve received:
“The Agile Journey series was well worth my time. I wrote over 35 pages of hand written notes… What I liked best was the real life experiences and observations about the ongoing challenges of implementing organizational Agile. I appreciated Gil’s calm and cool demeanor in probing questions to break complexities into digestible issues. Gil’s questions encouraged the guests to think deeply about some of the ongoing issues of adopting Agile practices.” — Frank Mangini, Agile/Lean Project Management Instructor, UC Santa Cruz Silicon Valley, California
