You Can’t Always Get What You Want…



Tony Grout shares one man’s journey to uncover what is needed to gain the goodwill - and budget - necessary to transform a large, regulated organization at scale and will focus on: the challenges at the start; the options that were considered; the reactions to what was done; and what is the situation now after two years.


Tony Grout builds measurably valued products at scale over following #agile rhetoric. Startup passionate plus enterprise discipline.
