12 Questions Wildly Successful Companies Answer Every Day

How do we increase our capability to become wildly successful? "12 Questions of Wildly Successful Agile Teams" helps leaders of all industries and disciplines learn to integrate agile values, methods, and techniques into what they are already doing through a dozen key questions they need to thrive in today's conflicted environment.

As a classically trained musician, turned technology executive, turned performance improvement innovator, Jeff Dalton has come see companies as orchestras and engineering as music. The near-perfect alignment between music and engineering enables strategies for achieving mastery in music to translate to other disciplines as well. In a presentation full of video, music and story-telling, Jeff helps teams that need to improve their capabilities understand how to create their own powerful road map for becoming wildly successful, based on the questions answered every day by great musicians. "12 Questions of Wildly Successful Agile Teams" shows the way.
