Agile in the Ether #16 / 15th November

Was on Friday 15th November, we spoke about…

  • Strategies for encouraging senior management / execs to adopt agile ways of working
  • Reporting and updates at scale – crafting something sensible?
  • What have you learned about running great impact mapping sessions?
  • Communities of practice outside of government, and across organisational boundaries. Who is doing it really well, and what patterns are worth adopting to start one yourself ? (apart from Agile in Ether, obvs)
