Why not Agile?

I have asked over 30 senior managers from the FinTech sector (CIOs, Project Directors, Procurement Department Directors, General Counsel) one question – WHY NOT AGILE?

During my presentation I will provide the answers, try to identify the legal risks and/or fears and look for some simple solutions. I hope that the combination of fears actually declared in the market, combined with potentially simple solutions will be useful for Agile practitioners when speaking to potential clients in the market.
