Solution Design for Agile Actual Delivery

How to break down a huge problem with many parts and components, risks and unknowns.

Too often, agile is explained using simple projects, or making changes to existing mature products and codebases. But how can you successfully be agile when working with real-world ‘warts and all’ systems, a team of people who may not have all the skills to support the change, little experience using modern engineering practices and tooling, and in an organisation that can’t help but sabotage it’s own efforts to change?
