Agile transformation has become a big deal among enterprise organizations, even if the deal has proved difficult to close. Agile software development has long thrived among independent developers, but recently large organizations across all industries have begun agile programs—only to watch those initiatives run into obstacles and lose steam. In this concise report, author Matt LeMay discusses why agile transformations in the enterprise fail, and then examines a business-goals-first approach that can help your company move forward with agile.
You’ll learn best practices for taking the goals-first approach, including two methods for implementing and scaling your agile process—using top-down scaled agile frameworks, or bottom-up localized experiments. After presenting case studies from Coca Cola and Adobe, LeMay also addresses additional steps that your organization can take to "future-proof" your agile transformation efforts.
