There’s nothing inherent in agile’s approach of build-measure-learn which means it cannot be successful for non-IT business endeavours.

This talk is a true story which proves it.

It’s a story about how, in the highly competitive grocery market, a group of non-IT people came from zero agile experience to a place of common intent and shared determination to make improvements for their colleagues and customers.

It’s about how a UK supermarket chain has found success in using agile ways of working to introduce innovation within their stores.

In this talk, you will learn how they’ve used a hypothesis-driven approach to run experiments, and used agile practices to reduce cost, increase sales and improve customer satisfaction.

This is a story about agile’s emerging success outside of IT.
