About the Presentation
In project management, the phrase "death march" refers to the demoralizing experience people assigned to a doomed project have just prior to and during its death throes. Agile teams generally avoid this type of death march, but can experience another, potentially more harmful, death march. Join us to explore this risk and discuss how to avoid the agile death march.
