Part 2 of 3, Lean Enterprise Live Training Series

While there are several frameworks for running large-scale Agile programs, the most popular suffer from one major flaw: they take Agile teams and embed them in a traditional program management paradigm, one that is ultimately derived from the 19th-century Taylorist management ideas on how to divide labor between managers and workers.

Jez Humble presents the principles behind a Lean/Agile paradigm that works at scale and truly leverages the inventiveness and passion of people throughout your organization. Jez illustrates his talk with examples of how organizations have applied these principles successfully even in complex, regulated domains.
