Executing Your First Agile Transformation

Online event

Abstract:

Most organizations don’t understand exactly what is required to carry out a successful Agile transformation. There is the thought that you are all set once Scrum ceremonies are underway and/or Agile task forces are established within the organization. This couldn’t be further from the truth. An agile transformation is a lengthy process, spanning anywhere between 3-5 years, that requires meticulous planning and the involvement of team members of varying levels across the organization. In this talk, I’ll walkthrough:
● A game plan on how my team planned and initiated an Agile Transformationeffort at a local bank here in Jamaica.
● How we managed the expectations of our stakeholders and brought alignment to all team members on the ground.
● Problems faced in our execution, and how we overcame them.
