Talk: The Beating Heart of Agile
What is it that makes an Agile team or an Agile organization run like a clockwork, deliver and succeed? Is Agile just a set of useful practices and tools, or is there more to it than meets the eye? Yes, we also have values and principles, but are those what really makes the difference between a team that delivers and one that doesn’t?

More than anything else: could it be that effective teamwork and social/relational proficiency, custom-fit for an Agile cultural environment, are the ultimate – and largely untapped – source of real competitive advantage?

In this session, based on the speaker’s experience, we’ll explore topics such as:

* challenging mental models
* collective intelligence
* organizational learning
* self-organization

Among other things, we’ll get insights on how all of the above are required (and can be fostered) to create a culture and an ecosystem where your organization and people can reap the benefits of an Agile approach – which include quality, fast feedback, constant improvement, learning and, of course, wealth.
