Eyes Wide Open – Considering the Ripple Effect when Implementing Agile Practices

Agile is most often applied to teams, but our experience shows us that when an organization implements Agile for consistent and predictable delivery, the forces of change affect aspects of the organization beyond initial interactions, similar to the ripple effect.

In this talk, we will present a model that shows how Agile quickly expands from individuals to teams and beyond. We give insight into organizational aspects that support and sustain Agile transitions long-term and open the door to organizational transformation.

Whether you are new to Agile or are a seasoned practitioner, this talk will provide insights into the ripple effect and help make clear the path forward toward widespread Agile adoption in your organization.
