-----------------------

Agile, the software method that was conceived as a way to cope with change, is itself dramatically changing. What we are now witnessing is the emergence of Agile 2.0. Four rapidly converging trends are driving the emergence of Agile 2.0:

Markets are becoming hyper-segmented;
Markets are also becoming fleetingly transient;
Value chains are becoming value webs; and,
Business designs are becoming as important as technological choices.

Traditionally, the Agile movement responded to change by “merging” two strands -- development and testing -- at the team level. Agile 2.0 extends this single-level approach by simultaneously applying Agile principles at three tiers:

The tier at which development, testing and operations merge
The tier at which strategy and delivery merge
The tier at which problem and solution merge

Agile 2.0 addresses the key challenge posed by “change is changing”: how to solve a problem when it is not understood well enough to produce a viable solution. Rapidly interlinked iterations at all three levels make it possible to substitute learning for planning. It’s through tight feedback loops in and amongst the three levels that the pace of learning accelerates to match the speed of change.

In this presentation, Cutter Fellow and Director of Cutter’s Agile practice, Israel Gat, will divulge the details you need to know about how to implement Agile 2.0 in your organization/company. You’ll get a blueprint for assessing and responding to the new realities of the competitive environment — without compromising the tried and true Agile tenets.

Dr. Israel Gat is a Cutter Consortium Fellow and Director of the Agile Product & Project Management practice as well as a Fellow of the Lean Systems Society. He is recognized as the architect of the agile transformation at BMC Software where, under his leadership, Scrum users increased from zero to 1,000, resulting in nearly three times faster time to market than industry average and 20%-50% improvement in team productivity. Among other accolades for leading this transition, Dr. Gat was presented with an Innovator of the Year Award from Application Development Trends in 2006.
