Scrum in a Suit - Coach Reveals All
Scrum Coach and Agile advocate Sandy Mamoli will share her experiences as a Scrum Coach at the ACC and Sony Ericsson in this "warts and all" presentation.

- Learn about Scrum as a framework for agile in development projects.
- Hear real life stories about the introduction of scrum at the ACC and Sony Ericsson.
- Find out what works and what doesn't. Get insights into challenging the norm.

Most of all, get the answers to "what is a Scrum coach anyway, and do I need one?".
