Scaling Agile into the Enterprise



We have found a stark and forbidding truth: an Agile team in a non-Agile enterprise will not long survive. What does it take to align an organization to Agile and Lean principles and practices? What are the dimensions of the problem? What are some of the approaches and practices that have been demonstrated to work? What are some of the patterns of how things can go horribly, horribly wrong?


Mark Ferraro is a transformation practitioner with Valtech. He has a decade and a half of information technology experience from many aspects of the software development value stream. He is focused on applying and helping others across the enterprise to apply industry-recognized Agile-Lean and other best practices that enable teams to meet and exceed business objectives.
