    In this talk, product expert and author Laura Klein shares her research into the most common reasons why many “agile” teams don’t seem very agile and often fail to incorporate designers. She’ll also cover why companies don’t always reap the expected benefits from their big, costly Agile Transformations. Laura will share her suggestions for correcting the worst of the anti-patterns and creating a healthier product design and development process. Come learn how you and your team can improve your agile practices.
