Jump Start Your Morning with a Double Shot of Agile

Presented by Eliassen Group Agile Consulting and Agile Baltimore


Come   Learn How to Unlock the Power of Agile in Your Organization!

Unlocking   the full power of Agile requires an understanding that changing the status   quo is a long-term, organization-wide, major initiative that will take   significant resources to accomplish. Such an initiative will only be   undertaken if the rewards are significantly greater than the cost. In this   session, you will learn about the true barriers to Agile adoption; the surprising   and significant financial benefits of organization-wide Agile transformation;   and the Kotter Change Model, an approach for implementing major change   management efforts.

More Information on Unlocking the Power of Agile

More and more organizations are realizing the benefits of running projects using Scrum, XP, and/or Kanban at the individual team level. Unfortunately, this typically means that in a 12-24 business idea to production timeframe, the “Agile” part may only be a 1-3 month “construction” phase with rigid controls in place that all but eliminate most of the benefit of Agile.


The root cause of this issue is that the whole organization is purpose-built to support and reinforce traditional methodologies while unintentionally impeding and discouraging the use of Agile methodologies. This is reflected in the organizational structure, physical location of people, the physical workplace, policies, procedures, governance, SDLC, contracts, vendors, belief systems, compensation, software tools, funding model, metrics, and more. A common belief is that all of these are set in stone and that Agile will need to fit in to this existing framework. As a result, many Agile adoptions eventually regress as the effort of working around the existing framework overwhelms the enthusiasm of the Agile evangelists.
