Agile Fiascos - Art Gallery

Oscar Wilde said "Experience is simply the name we give to our mistakes." All of us have made or seen others make mistakes in implementing Agile and have learnt our lessons from them. In this session we invite you to tell the story of the fiasco through a picture, a cartoon or any other creative visual.

In the end we will all look at each others' posters and then vote for the best.
