    Tanvir Ahmed - How large businesses can be Agile without frameworks or methodologies

    40 Mins
    Experience Report

    We have seen so many Agile methodologies and scaling frameworks in the industry but even after rigorously implementing them, very few organizations are getting real benefits. True agile organizations are not big followers of these out of the box frameworks or methodologies rather we observed four key trends that has emerged to be the game changers:

    • Hyper-Decentralization
    • Data Intensive Decisions
    • Change as a non-event
    • Next-Gen Cross functionality

    In this session, we will discuss the key emerging trends that are driving agility and how organizations can embrace them without the need for any framework or methodology.
