Webinar: Agile Adoption Strategies – January 2013

This webinar discusses four typical scenarios of Agile adoption in organizations.

While many organizations are adopting Agile practices, there is a real concern about creating lasting Agile transformation. Organizations need to move beyond superficial practices/ceremonies to a deeper understanding of the essence of Agile – “Being Agile” rather than “Doing Agile”. In this informative session, Don McGreal, VP of Learning Solutions at Improving Enterprises, will explore four levels of agile adoption:

  • Individual Adoption: The mindset of an agile team member and strategies for promoting agile within their team and beyond.
  • Development Team Adoption: Strategies for a team that may not have support from the business and management.
  • Project Adoption: Development and business strategies within an enterprise that may not support agile.
  • Enterprise Adoption: Transitioning an organization from the top-down.

Along the way, we will cover topics such as: non-dedicated teams, matrix organizations, third-party dependencies, scaling agile, regulatory constraints, and any other challenges brought up by participants.
