Hi. I’ve been at Bain for 42 years, and I lead our Global Innovation and Agile Practices. I love Agile, but I’m more of an Agile pragmatist than a zealot. I look forward to the discussion.

Hi Sarah, thanks for your time! Can you talk a bit about your experience as a female leader in Agile? I find it to be very male-dominated, which can be intimidating to me sometimes.

Thanks for taking the time! I wasn’t aware that Bain was dabbling so much in tech strategy. More of a meta question, but how large is this practice compared to traditional business strategy?
