Agile for Mergers & Acquisitions?

This week in SoundNotes we’re focusing on a question asked by a student in a recent class:

Can you use Agile for Mergers and Acquisitions?

To address the topic, LeadingAgile Principal Consultant Rick McMichael joins Dave to discuss Mergers and Acquisitions (or M&A). Rick has years of experience working in Agile and he’s been a part of many M&A efforts over the years. During the podcast we discuss the various steps involved in bringing two different organizations together to form a new one, and how Agile practices can be applied to help this work go smoother and deliver more value for the companies involved, the people who work at them, and the customer.
