Certified LeSS Practitioner | Diego Callizo

I am so happy I decided to participate in this training!. Cesario is a rare to find Agile Genius. I got tons of value by responding a lot of my old questions.  
I.e. What are the musts in order to facilitate a successful Agile adoption?   

I liked that the training is not based on prescribing roles and structures but mostly on changing the way we understand and think about complex systems. Some of the concepts explained like i.e. system thinking transform the way I understand big scale software development forever.
