Politically Incorrect Agile


Consultant, coach, trainer and facilitator. Tiago has worked in multiple large-scale Agile transitions across Europe, supporting change leaders and teams in their continuous improvement efforts. He is passionate about promoting Agile and Lean thinking to organizations and leaders interested in cultivating high performing teams.


You always hear about the benefits of Agile, and how great the Promised Land of Agility is. Many times probably by people who earn their living selling some consulting on the topic (guilty as charged, your honor). And here's the thing - it is great! But... what are the consultants, coaches and trainers not telling you? What's it like "under-the-hood"? What are some practical things you need to know about working in an Agile environment that perhaps you're not warned about upfront? What happens to annoying people in Scrum? Do Agile coaches work in "Agile" organisations themselves? What do you do when a manager just doesn't "get it"... but thinks he does? Do big consultancies actually know anything about Agile? And do they really believe in it? Are we losing all our ScrumMasters to the freelance coaching/training market? What happens when the manager who hired you as a coach is actually the root cause for many of the problems he's complaining about? Let's take a look at the topics, stories and discussions you don't usually hear about when discussing Agile. With some humor, a lot of candour, and some interesting questions, this talk will take a look at Agile from a different perspective - a behind-the-scenes look into a movement that's trying to change the world of work.


A basic knowledge of Agile topics is probably necessary. Some experience working with Agile methods such as Scrum is a plus.

Benefits for the attendees

An understanding of some of the challenges faced by people and organisations trying to adopt Agile, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the people helping them do it. Ultimately, the participant should leave with some interesting food for thought about what it really means to embark in an Agile transition.
