Agile is now a proven approach to delivering software projects but it can still be a challenge to integrate effectively with existing company structures and processes. There are many factors that drive the size of this challenge:
- "Unreasonably" restrictive governance demands from the organization - Large distributed development teams that seek to mix offshore with local teams - Complex web of customer representatives, making agreement hard but also demanding to know when scope will be delivered - Restrictive financial governance that demands strong focus on value delivery
This Managing Agile webinar will look at Agile from these perspectives and more, and provide simple pragmatic steps you can take tomorrow to make Agile adoption a reality in these more challenging contexts
