Please join us for a special presentation from Jorgen Hesselberg, traveling all the way from Norway!
When analyzing millions of data points from the world's largest agile assessment database, it's clear that certain team practices and behaviors are highly correlated with positive business outcomes. What are these concrete behaviors and why is it that they - consistently - are associated with better business outcomes across enterprises in virtually all industries? Conversely, what are some of the patterns that tend to correlate with negative results?
In this talk, we'll will show you what concrete behaviors are associated with positive outcomes such as customer satisfaction and quality improvements so you can amplify your focus and dampen those practices that tend to correlate with negative outcomes. We'll also outline a simple, yet effective approach to get a deeper understanding of why certain behaviors tend to lead to bad outcomes - and how to implement a data-driven approach to continuous improvement.”
