Regional Scrum Gathering India 2014 started with keynote session on “The Power of Relationships” by Niloofer Giri, traditional teacher of Vedanta. She talked about some unseen laws and principles that govern our relationships. She said knowing these laws mean that we don’t unknowingly injure others or ourselves while relating.

He talked about the distinction between the various roles in a successful agile transformation and characteristics accompany those responsibilities.

  • Understand the level of coaching you need
  • Change is good (and inevitable)
  • Quality vs Quantity
  • Trust is a bank account
  • Meaningful change requires patience
