It's visually captivating.  Who's your audience?

It definitely is. I'd say a presentation like that could be used with
any audience. One
would say different things, of course.

One negative: the image for Technical Excellence is a bit boring. I have no
better ideas however.

Hi, Karl.
1. From comprehension and general feeling point of view:
I like the idea. It gives me feeling, how complex skills we need.

Personally I'm overwhelmed by text slides. I have to develop effort to
find, what is actually important.
Basic idea is actually good! What I would do is developing each text
based slide. Not showing everything on the first one, but showing one
branch at a time.

It would be helpful to have style consistency between pictures slide
and text based slides. One idea is to base it on color. I like e.g.
Self improvement - you have a picture with a lot of white and your
next slide has light background.


2. The other side was already brought up by Andre: who is the target
audience and what message do you want to deliver to them.

Looks really, really good. Short and sweet, very concise and
beautifully.

Thank you all for your comments. It is very appreciated.

About the target audience, I wasn't thinking about one in particular.
I wanted to show that Agile is not only Scrum and XP. There is also a
bunch of skills to learn and the project has made a fine collection or
pillars to categorize them. The goal is to show what are these
pillars, what they represent and get a glimpse of the skills attached
to them.

So there is some audience. People, who:
- know Scrum and XP
- don't know, what is under the hood or don't know what is needed for
successful execution
