WHY AGILE TRANSFORMATION FAILS
Leading change in large organizations is more than just teaching Scrum to developers or SAFe to a broader product organization. The scale and complexity are huge. The number of stakeholders is mind-numbing. And aligning interests across the organization is almost impossible. For Agile to work, it's going to require a different approach to how we think about process and methodology, how we think about transitioning to this new way of working, and how we make sure the changes are effective now and in the future.
To unpack this, we must explore the differences between what we call a System of Delivery (SOD), a System of Transformation (SOT), and a System of Continuous Improvement (SOCI):
This talk will explore each system's key attributes: the critical success factors, why the systems are necessary, and how they individually and collectively work together to help an organization build momentum, become a more effective delivery organization, and sustain momentum going forward.
