Ten years after adopting Agile
You adopted Agile methods ten year ago. What’s going on now? This is one company’s example.
We adopted Agile practices in 2007 and in the process we have tried and screwed up many things. But we have also gotten a lot right. We believe we have a valuable story to share. For one, we are a fast growing company, rapidly increasing our revenues and staff size. We are also maintaining a great reputation with our staff as an employer they love (see our Glassdoor rating of 4.4/5).
This talk will address questions including:
- What are you talking about after 250 retrospectives?
- What does leadership look like? What do managers do?
- What principles drive organisational design? And how does our organisation evolve in this context?
- What compromises do you make and how do you deal with them?
- How do you handle challenges like distributed teams?
In showcasing one example of mature Agile, this presentation will help people to think about decisions they make as their company evolves. It will highlight the things that underpin Agile maturity – including behaviours, values, and communication.In so doing, I will demonstrate that Agile maturity isn’t dependent on pre-canned models like SAFE and LESS. Agile maturity opens new challenges – and the realisation that there isn’t an end state, just new kinds of challenges.
