In May 2017, agile leaders from the banking, insurance, telecom, technology and publishing sectors gathered with Ivar Jacobson International (IJI) at the Tower of London to discuss the important role executives, product managers and release trains engineers play in a successful agile transformation programme. With clients from Deutsche Bank, SimCorp and Mastercard participating in the panel discussions, guests heard first-hand what it really means to adopt, resource and carry out these roles in large, often quite traditional, internal software development organisations.
