Here are the "key themes" captured in the "summary sheets" from the PMI Congress X-Change breakfast table discussions - please do respond with any insights/ideas/reactions:
*A success factor in adopting agile is breaking down dependencies between systems and departments
*Agile requires engagement on all levels

*Crucial to balance priority - requires schedule vs value trade-offs
*Change, change, change
