Webinar: Introduction to Enterprise Agility

This webinar introduces the Enterprise Agility framework for enterprise wide Agile adoption.

While Agile can produce modest gains in operational efficiency, its primary benefit comes from gains in business value creation. Maximizing business value creation requires changing how business is done and applying the principles and values of Agile throughout the Enterprise. There are many widely used Agile frameworks such as Scrum, XP, and Kanban, but these frameworks primarily contain guidance for only a single isolated team and do not provide guidance for creating an Enterprise Agile ecosystem. This session will address this problem by exploring the concept of “Enterprise Agility.” Enterprise Agility is about applying the principles and values of Agile to create an ecosystem that embraces and supports Agile throughout the Enterprise.

Participants will get an introduction to:

  • The significant potential economic benefits of Enterprise Agility
  • How to coordinate multiple Agile teams within a larger program
  • Organizational, process and mindset changes needed to support Agile
  • The role of leadership in implementing Enterprise Agility
  • Specific principles and practices for applying Agile to the Enterprise
