The Death Of Productivity: How transparency can destroy Agile teams

Retrium Team

With deadlines approaching, budgets decreasing, and scope starting to creep, managers often rely on tools and strategies promising to help teams improve productivity, increase transparency, and facilitate collaboration. While the intention is good - transparency can’t be bad, right? - many teams lose sight of the need to balance transparency with privacy and safety in the rush to meet their goals.

Join President and Principal Agile Consultant for the Lankford Group, Todd Lankford, as he shares how teams are actually killing productivity in the name of transparency, and the steps teams can take to find balance between transparency, trust, privacy, and productivity in a live webinar and Q&A on April 29th at 11:30 am EST. 


Participants in the live event will

  • Learn tips and strategies to improve the team and organizational productivity 
  • Understand the value transparency can provide for your team, and when it should and shouldn’t be a goal for your team.  
  • Participate in a Live Q&A with Todd to ask specific questions about your experience
