Agile on the Beach 2014 for the Business Professional

2014-04-24 10.25.54The conference is 3 weeks away, we have sold out and it is set to be a great event!

Full details of the sessions and biographies of the speakers are available on the website. www.agileonthebeach.com.

Following last years request I have listed below the sessions in Business, Teams and Product Design below, of which those in Bold are the sessions that I feel are most relevant and applicable for any business interested in becoming a more agile organisation or individual.

While the sessions are often in a software context there are many elements that are relevant to any business and transferable for adoption in a wide array of situations in all of the below sessions.
