Fear and Loathing in Agility: Long Live the Accounting Department

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

"A dead ScrumMaster is a useless ScrumMaster,” echo the votary of Ken Schwaber (Co-Founder of Scrum) folklore. In this session hosted by Pat Reed (Agile Alliance Board Member) and Laszlo Szalvay (Executive at SolutionsIQ) we will explore how and why the accounting department needs to be your biggest champion as you embark on your next agile transformation. Pat and Laszlo will walk through concrete steps and real world examples of how capitalization works with Scrum and what you need to tell the accountants so they don’t shoot you.

So don’t end up a dead ScrumMaster. Come to this session.
