Journey from “I” to “We”

Track: Agile and Organizational Behavior
Type of Paper: Experience

Summary
Through this whitepaper, we would like to share our journey of how an Agile mindset was imbibed in a traditionally inclined workforce by shifting focus from Agile frameworks to Agile values and principles. By keeping human at the core, leveraging tools, technologies and leaning processes, a culture of innovation was fostered. This resulted in delivering exponential value with reduced time to market and enhanced user experience.

Are we going over board with collaboration?

Track: Agile and Organizational Behavior
Type of Paper: Experience

Summary
While collaboration seems be buzz word everywhere, are we collaborating to the level of suffocation? With open offices which are supposed to enhance our communication and collaboration, is it throwing us in all time “distracted” phase.
What are the long term consequences of this kind of over collaborative approach? Do we really have to stay connected all the time?
