The Magic Potion of Scaling Agile!
Wed, Sep 16, 2015 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM BST
Agile is commonly credited with delivering Business Benefits quicker. However to deliver consistent Business Benefits, the organisation needs to become an ecosystem where Agile culture can foster.
Many Agile adoptions, especially those ‘at scale’, encounter significant challenges and there appear to be just as many tales of failed Agile as successful Agile. Much focus has been placed on various ‘Agile at scale' frameworks such as SAFe, LeSS and DAD, but could this be where the issue lies?
In this webinar Manav & James will share practical insights into leading large scale Agile transformations and creating the ‘Magic potion of Scaling Agile’. It will also provide practical insights on how choice of Agile framework for adoption is less important than the environment in which the transformation is set-up.
“It doesn’t matter how good the seed is, if it planted in the wrong environment.”
