Practicing Agile in an organization that is obsessed with excessive of process, documentation, and planning tools can seem an impossible task. In this session, learn how one division of a global financial services company transformed first themselves, and then became a model for the rest of the enterprise.  By focusing on the business outcomes attained in initial efforts – predictability, faster time to market, and quality – a small team of change agents demonstrated value that crosses corporate boundaries. In this presentation, we will explain the key challenges faced and the steps that have made it possible for us to succeed in an enterprise transformation, including the metrics, processes, and practices that help make a large-scale transformation last

    Hi, Melissa,

    The description needs to make attendees recognize themselves and the problems they face and offer them some help in facing them. The outline/structure needs to describe to the reviewers how the talk will meet the promise of the description. Both of these are a bit thin on this proposal.
