Agile in Practice - Scenarios in Action

Knowing the basics * "as we reviewed them in May 2013"* allows for a good baseline. (I'd like to encourage everyone to revisit the slides prior to this session.) The question remains, however - how do we apply what we've learned and what are some of the scenarios that we will need to deal with once we start injecting Agile into our workspace? Do we say "no" to our stakeholders when they try to change our project plans? How do we estimate our costs if the project plans keep changing - is our reputation as project managers going to suffer in the process?

The above are just some of the questions that we will aim at answering during the "Agile in Practice - Scenarios in Action" session. The goal for this round will be to present best practices of applying an Agile framework, specifically Scrum, to the everyday workplace, while comparing and contrasting how the same is currently done elsewhere.
