Palestra: Agile Transformation best practices.


Today we find many organizations with firmly established processes leaning towards large scale agile adoption. Agile transformation represents a big change from traditional, plan driven methods and it should be taken seriously. Considering mainstream agile methods such as scrum would suggest that agile projects have small, collocated, and self-sufficient teams. However, in reality and during an agile transition, agile teams do not work in such idealistic circumstances. How agile practices can be introduced gradually within a waterfall organization? What are the actions taken and what really happens during an agile transformation? How do you effectively be agile in enterprise environment and what are the best practices to ensure your agile adoption successfully? Based on real-world experiences, this presentation explores a number of issues with respect to enterprise-scale agile adoption and offers advice on how to addresses the many challenges and organizational barriers that are encountered during the transition. It is about the integration of the agile in a non-agile world that will be demonstrated during this session.
