Right after Valery was Kristijan from WS Agency.
Kristijan didn't have time to prepare his presentation, but his speech was helpful in every possible way, you should definitely hear it.
Pain process and steps every company must take when trying to practice an agile way of doing things.
Kristijan shared the experience with the agile coach they had, how the thing got better and sometimes worst.
Overall this was real life presentation how Kanban or Scrum are used in the production when you have one client, big project or when you have maintenance work to do.
The conclusion is that Agile is not perfect, you must learn, adapt, change, mix, and always to strive to be better as a whole team together.
