Agile West Midlands second Meet Up in October is set to be a great event.
Ben Saich - Principle Agile Coach - Retail - Sainsburys, will be talking about "Our road to Agile (So far)". Ben explains what's going to be discussed...
Over the last couple of years Sainsbury's has transformed it's Engineering capability from a small number of Agile teams to a thriving technology division built around Agile principles. In my role as Lead Agile Coach, and as a member of the Retail & Logistics Tech Leadership team, I've had the opportunity to be a part of that change both at the portfolio and team levels.
On the 8th of October I'll be talking about that journey to date including the challenges, opportunities, successes, failures and what we've learnt from these. I'll also provide some wider thoughts based on my previous experiences in Agile change / transformation and I'll touch on the future from the perspective of my new role as Principle Agile Coach in the Retail CTO of the newly created Sainsbury's Tech.
Pizza, refreshments and networking too!
