There are a lot of potential roadblocks to Agile transformation and team success, including global distribution of teams, multiple backlogs and stakeholders, legacy applications to maintain and support, and a fluid team structure. Our team has all this and more! So how do we find Agile success in the face of these real world constraints that are far from anyone's ideal setup?

This session is for anyone on an Agile team who is looking for new ideas, or is worried that the real world constraints keeping their team from "Ideal Agile" will also keep them from having Agile success.
