      Sriram Rajagopalan - TBD Approach to Agile Transformation

      45 Mins

      The principles of agile are so simple that its simplicity eludes many practitioners. Pulling in a white board with sticky notes, writing user stories instead of business requirements document, avoiding developing any document, and use of some agile popular tools does not mean that agile has been implemented. 

      In this presentation, I provide an approach to how agile transormation begins. Fundamental to agile is the self-organization and if one doesn't think (T) agile, become (B) agile by following the recommended steps, and develop (D) on practices to refine agile in the specific industry, agile will not solve the business challenges. The personality traits of those leaders that attempt to transform into agile will lead to incorrect implementation.  Often, in such cases if Agile fails, it is because we failed agile! 

      Breaking on the TBD approach, this presentation will explore additional topics that start with us, team, and the organization to truly transform into agile methodology.
