Then we talked about her presentation “Becoming an Agile Leader Regardless of Your Role”, what the cost of delay is and how it can help you learn about your program and portfolio, and how to beat writers block and get your words on paper.

Johanna is known as the “Pragmatic Manager who provides frank advice for difficult problems. She a prolific author and blogger. She also publishes a newsletter called The Pragmatic Manager. She provides workshops, training, and other services to organizations looking to improve the way they get work done.

And then…we called it a day.

I’d like to thank the Central Ohio Agile Association for putting on The Path to Agility Conference and for allowing me to interview the speakers and attendees at the conference.
