"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." - Marcel Proust. The real value of agile is a new mindset and a different philosophy. This mindset shift leads to a better approach to how the work works. In this talk we will go on a safari. A safari through the landscape of mindsets that are stopping us from adding real value.
