It isn’t easy, but it’s well worth you trying.
There’s a reason why the biggest banks in the world are adopting Agile. It isn’t because it’s a fad, it isn’t a fleeting idea. It is because it really makes a difference in how treat employees, how we envision products, and how we impact customers.
There is absolutely nothing about adopting Agile. It’s a fact, that every organization face unforeseen challenges in adoption. One would think a small startup company would have an easier time adopting Agile than a mammoth financial institution, but that’s not always the case. What makes it so difficult? What does resistance look like? What does success look like? Let’s talk about this in a real way.
This session will be broken up into a 15 minute presentation followed by a discussion on topics based on input from the audience.
The Presentation (15 minutes):

  • Agile adoption challenges that Pat has witnessed - stories - examples
  • Overview of what successful Agile adoptions look like and what one could do to help foster that in their own organization

The Discussion (balance of time):

  • Collection of ideas to discuss followed by a vote on the top topics
  • Open forum discussion facilitated by me on this topic
  • Action items for the group

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the value that the Agile approach can bring
  • Learn the challenges faced when adopting Agile
  • Learns some techniques to address those challenges
