Perfect Topic

Using his material to try to get my management to maximize going from Waterfall to Agile by also going from projects to products.

Inspiring and thought-provoking

I really enjoyed the first two episodes with Mik and Gene Kim talking about their insights from working with hundreds of CIOs. These are two people who truly care about making every traditional business as successful as big tech companies and digital natives—and their passion is palpable. The stories they share are inspiring, funny and honestly a little scary! Recommend it highly for anyone working in software delivery!

UpHillLarry ,
