Can a big organisation adopt Agile?

Making the shift to being Agile in a small team can sometimes be hard enough. Attempting to shift many teams across an organisation that is very set in its ways can be even harder. Jun Ding is the IT Practice Lead at Cathay Pacific Airways and has been trying to do just that over the last few years by leading the Agile transformation there.

 

Jun will share her story of trying to introduce Agile to a 500 people IT group and the strategy behind it, including:

  • the success in building teams to lead by example from the bottom up
  • how technology can support an Agile adoption
  • the differences between and importance of the role of Agile coaches in building capability
  • making room for Agile on leadership team radar when they already have a million priorities to support
  • the personal shift required in leadership style

    hi Jun, thanks for the submission. It would be nice to understand - what thought process went behind your strategy, any theory or frameworks used, and is it possible to share 'human' sides of the story?
