Abstract:

This talk is about the agile adoption journey applied to transition a 40+ members team working on different projects.

Agile adoption is not about bringing in a new process; instead it is more about defining or rather redefining the organizational culture. This is one of the biggest challenges that any organization will encounter while it is embracing their agile journey.

There are many inherent problems with most organizations which need to be tackled during agile adoption. The main reason for high failure rate is because; change-agents talk of adopting agile and not about transforming the organizational culture to support its agile journey. The sad consequence is mainly due to the fact that change-agents undertaking organizational transformation do not have a proper buy-in or understanding of organizational consequences.
We have defined a framework to address this. This framework focuses on individuals, helping team transformation impacting its organizational culture.

To enable the team through agile adoption, I propose six step approach.
Evaluate: Conduct agile adoption evaluation and identify gaps Gap analysis: Analyze gaps and derive ways on how to bridge the gaps
Propose: Propose and align various agile approaches that suites the team
Define: Define plan, adoption approach and road map
Pilot: Deploy pilot projects as part of agile transition
Extend: Extend across organization
