Many organizations are moving away from traditional style of software development. Though Agile practices are injected in the  Enterprise after initial study , assessments and POC's, However, to reap the real benefits of Agile , it is important to have them successfully scaled across the distributed geographies and also have the whole organization transformed towards core agility. This is where the major bumps occur, as the organizations come out of their comfort zone and move towards a new world of Agility. It gets little more complex with multiple vendors and global distribution across different time-zones.

Me and Anand are working as Agile Coaches in a similar MNC Banking IT environment and would like to share our experience on How we are transitioning a huge traditional program towards better Agility , as Global Banks are leveraging Technology for enhanced Customer Experience to deliver Business value. They are moving away from transaction driven operations to enriched user experience and hence, there is a need of incorporating faster feedback, quick turn around and continuous value delivery to be ahead in the competition. This is where the need of core agility comes in place and its a mix of science , art and common sense. Our talk will take you through a journey.....

    How many deliverables should we commit to our customers in, say, the next two weeks? An intriguing question asked by many Agile teams at the beginning of every iteration. The answer to this question depends largely on the team's thinking, philosophy, and skills -- which unfortunately cannot be measured. Then how do we forecast the deliverables?

    How about a mathematical formula that provides an unbiased control based on the historical achievements of the team, which can be used for prediction? That's exactly what focus factor does.
