Agile Mindset for Agile Transformation

Agile Transformation is a holistic initiative and impacts the People, Process and Technology aspects.

AgileNext at Wipro Technologies is the Agile Center of Excellence chartered with Agile transformation of our teams. In our journey of Agile transformation, we realize that Agile transformation is a change initiative which impacts people from a behavioral perspective, apart from alignment of Agile roles & responsibilities and the process knowledge.

We plan to share, based on our experience of working with various clients, behavioral challenges encountered when we transform teams from a traditional mindset to an Agile mode of working

We will describe the enablers used through behavioral trainings and boot camps to create awareness on the key behavioral adaptations. The specific focus will be around how to imbibe Agile mindset in multivendor Distributed Agile teams working across multiple time zones.

    Hi Jerry, 

    Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate your concern on the coverage possible in 20 min

    The idea is to share the concept and not elaborate on the details. Hence I thought 20 min would be sufficient
