 Presentation Overview: Agile Transformation

“Agile Transformation” is about organizations learning how to adopt new behaviors that will help their teams be more agile.  Presenter Tim Zeller outlines a strategy and architecture to guide Waterfall-based organizations to take advantage of agile methods for a lighter, leaner approach to solving business problems incrementally and iteratively.  For companies that want to transition to an agile environment without disrupting the business, “Agile Transformation” gives you everything you need to get started. Take-aways include:

An alternative approach to methods that utilize top-heavy, document-focused, command-and-control structure 

A scalable, sustainable way to improve requirements churn and volatility, meet schedule and budget, and perform the work you do every day

A roadmap for more rapid delivery, getting products to market faster and having better customer involvement
