Laying A Strong Foundation for Agile Transformation
Success of an Agile Transformation depends a great deal on how effectively it gets initiated.
This experience report presentation will discuss a 5-Step approach deployed for successfully initiating an Agile Transformation engagement at a client location.
The practices that ensured effective identification and execution of two pilot projects will be shared.
We will also talk about how using a customized version of Comparative Agility™ Assessment Framework, the impact of the Agile way of working on these pilot projects was measured.
The impact of Agile on pilots was presented in terms of quantified measures (metrics) of benefits and areas of improvements to the leadership team. The results were encouraging enough for them to continue with the Agile Transformation exercise by bringing the rest of the projects in the organization into its fold.
