Mind the gap – incorporating the change agenda into scaled Agile

Session slideshow

More and more organisations are turning to scaled Agile methods and frameworks to understand dependencies between development teams when delivering complex in-house products. Even though scaled agile is not explicitly limited to delivering just IT, scant mention is made of the full range of activities necessary to deliver the required business impact. The result is that IT gets delivered at scale, but not the change required within the business to adopt the new technology.

In this talk Lyn discusses the problems that compromise the delivery of value and how to incorporate people, process and policy changes into scaled agile so business value can be realised.
