Joe Astolfi and Gene Johnson, TURNING HORSES INTO ZEBRAS: A FIRSTHAND ACCOUNT OF AN AGILE TRANSFORMATION
Audience level: Beginner to Advanced Witness firsthand accounts from the front lines of a successful Agile transformation. In 2009, Gap Inc Direct, the online division of Gap, Inc. made a commitment to extend their Agile software delivery practices to their Columbus, Ohio development campus where teams provide solutions for online order fulfillment and call center operations. Learn the hidden truths, best practices, and lessons learned from “going Agile” as you join us on our journey in transitioning from a traditional waterfall approach to high performing Agile teams in a matter of months.
Ben Blanquera and Matt Van Vleet, EXTENDING AGILE - TO FINANCE (really?)
Audience level: Intermediate to Advanced At Progressive Medical Inc (PMI) Value Stories are one of the most innovative aspects of our transformation. Essentially a Value Story covers how what we are building will make or save money. A guiding principle of our projects is working on the items that create the most value first. Value stories enable us to have an enterprise view of where value is created (crossing multiple functional boundaries) We were already formalizing our ROI process, now we have fairly granular Value Stories, with a numerical ROI, that are used to prioritize work within large multi-stakeholder initiatives.
