Transformation to Greater Business Agility

To achieve the true promise of agile it isn’t enough to pilot a few Scrum teams or buy a tool. You must start by sharing enterprise strategy across all of your agile teams. Visibility into the strategy empowers teams as they prioritize the work they want to deliver, and connects the teams enabling greater collaboration

Agile development practices typically break down as you scale across teams and across the broader organization.

  • Teams have too much Work in Process
  • Teams don’t coordinate their work
  • Teams work on the wrong priorities
  • Strategy and execution are misaligned

At CA, we’ve learned that delivering high value software to customers requires multiple, coordinated, strategically aligned development teams working together to plan and execute a release. Scaling across teams and the organization is where Agile development practices typically break down, making it challenging to develop a realistic, actionable delivery plan.
