Agile transformation can be a daunting yet very rewarding endeavor. Organizations are adopting Agile principles beyond their traditional software teams and looking for benefits in other areas across the value stream. This includes changes not only in engineering and how we build and deliver products but in other organizational areas such as management, procurement, leadership, human resources, or any area of the organization that is part of the delivery pipeline. Organizations are making great strides in their agile journey yet there are challenges and barriers to overcome as an organization’s beliefs, practices, and culture slowly change. Yet change does not happen overnight. Changing how we’ve done business for many decades can create feelings of fear and a sense of uncertainty for people. What can be done to help overcome these barriers of fear, uncertainty, unfamiliarity, and in some cases, inertia? What are some techniques that can be used to develop an agile mindset and make the shift to further adoption? In this talk we will discuss the importance of Agile across the enterprise and provide some examples from those who have gone “full agile” adopting it within their various functional groups and within any environment. Additional resources and references will be provided for those seeking to make a difference within their team, program, or organization.
