When building a team you want to hire the right people. With the right experience, and willingness to apply Agile in their work. That’s a great idea in theory, but in practice every workplace is different. Every team is new. And to adapt to the new place we need to learn to work in a new way. Josh shares with us a story of a team that he hired but found out that their concept and experience of “agile” was not what was needed. Learn how Josh helped those team members “unlearn” the old habits and succeed with agile in a new organization.
