    Our talk will focus on the evolution of the Agile implementation in Amdocs.

    While Kanban is widely implemented in the Amdocs Delivery unit, recently we have started experimenting with Scrum in pockets.

    Taking it a step further, not wanting to lose out on our learning from Kanban, we are trying ScrumBan in a large scale project.

    We will share the approach, the challenges and what we have adopted from Scrum and Kanban in this implementation.

    A brief introduction to Amdocs - Amdocs is a leading provider of Customer Experience systems and services in the telecommunications domain, typically doing large scale transformation projects.

    Case Study
    Intermediate

    In 2011, I worked for Qik, a startup that got aqcuired by Skype. At that time Skype was in the middle of an agile transition. Аfter aquisition, Qik team was told to adopt the Agile process used by Skype. I worked with the team as an agile coach. After adopting Skype's "agile" process, our ability to deliver was brought down to almost zero. In this talk, I'll tell you the story as it happened, analyze the key problems that we faced and describe how we finally solved them. Come to this talk, if you want to avoid similar mistakes. If you are already through with your transition, I would be interested to know if you see any patterns.
