Presentation: 6 x 9 = 42? Don't panic - Refurbish your Backlogs

Track: Leaders Track: Lean Startup & Innovation / Time: Thursday 13:20 - 14:10 / Location: Pendulum

New inspiring ideas, the feasibility and value of which are disputed, can thus mature smoothly to innovations on the road. No panic needed.
