Pleasure or Pain? who the hell is this guy? John Armstrong-Prior @dextermixwith Reluctant/Non-Participating Customers are Bad News It may take a while to win them over Show stuff early - stories, mock-ups prototypes Get them into planning & retrospectives How I learned to stop trying to 'do agile' and just worked constantly on being more Lean. or Keep Things As Simple As You Can Incrementally Extend/Expand/Improve The 7 Lean Principals Eliminate waste
Amplify learning
Decide as late as possible
Deliver as fast as possible
Empower the team
