Organizations of all sizes and types are launching into Agile waters. Some organizations invest in coaching and some wing it. This presentation shares lessons learned from Agile adoption challenges learned common to many real world experiences. We share things we have learned to increase visibility, to integrate Agile projects in waterfall organizations, and to manage and address risks with mixed location teams (onshore and offshore) and complex integration environments.

We share several specific challenges and some possible solutions for:

Are we there yet? Release visibility across mixed Agile and waterfall projects

Where's the boat? Agile project co-existence with Waterfall projects

Who's my rowing team? Figuring out Agile with teams both onshore and offshore teams that aren't collocated

I had a paddle here some place: how tools help and how tools hurt

Come and learn how to keep your craft from capsizing as you navigate the agile waters on the edge of the waterfall. We will help you recognize patterns and how you can be agile in your solutions.
