Are you a manager in a highly diverse business that struggles to make transformational innovation happen?

Are you held back by dogmatically prescribed new methods that give no room for exploration?

Do you wish you had the Agile tools and knowledge to spark change in your company and FINALLY exceed goals and expectations?

If you said YES to any of these questions, you’re in the right place.

Follow … The Path of Ray, Howard, and Britta: An Essential Tale of Agile Transformation Strategy” by René Schröder is the first installment to his bestselling “The Panda Story Trilogy” — aimed at all those who wish to kindle continuous transformation in any corporate context.


Ray, Howard, and Britta — incredible Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches at ReG Inc. — are called to take on the challenge of presenting a new version of the SuS Suite at the trade fair… and impress.

But, with the trade fair only a few weeks away, how do they make this happen?

And so begins their weeks-long adventure, using Scrum as a framework to set up the company in an agile way on both the team and company levels.

No stone (or issue) goes unturned as Ray, Howard, and Britta end each brainstorming session with a consistent and structured framework they like to call the “Agile Clinic” — A regular opportunity to pick apart what went right, what went wrong, and how they’re going to improve or do things differently going forward.

From the refinement and acceptance criteria stage to demo stage, the trio immersed themselves in real-world problems and their proven workarounds.

Now, the question that comes begging is: Will they be able to present a newer and better version of the SuS Suite (and impress) just in time for the trade fair?

Find out for yourself in “Follow … The Path of Ray, Howard, and Britta: An Essential Tale of Agile Transformation Strategy”!

If you’re looking to deepen your understanding of agile methods and practices, such as Scrum, User Stories, Acceptance Criteria, Retrospectives, etc., in order and put them into the right context in your company, then get ready to meet your next favorite book!
