When your organization began adopting agile did you ask or get asked questions like: Is there a way to quantify the cost of the transition?How many teams or what scope should the initial transition effort cover? Should we use an internal coach or hire an external coach?How does training fit in to the adoption? How do we measure our success?Should we use an existing scaling framework or develop our own?

Over the past 10 years I have been assisting companies with their transitions to agile. During this presentation I will communicate various lessons I have learned by working with senior and executive management. I will not be focusing much attention on the political issues and cultural issues that other presentations cover in depth. Rather, I will focus on lessons learned addressing practical questions (like the ones above) whose answers are actionable in the context of performing a transition to agile.
