Go Faster: Remove the Inhibitors to Innovation - Agile Singapore Conference 2016

Published on: Tuesday, 18 October 2016

Speaker: Fred George (@fgeorge52), Consultant @ Fred George Consulting

A common theme runs through conferences, whether focused on MicroServices, DevOps, Lean Startup, or a myriad of other popular topics: Enabling an organization to Go Faster . I explore the need to go faster (which is hardly new), and three areas inhibitors arise: Technology choices, staid business Processes, and traditional Organization structures and roles. For each, I cite personal experiences in overcoming each.
