FREE WEBINAR: How to scale Agile effectively


Thursday, September 6, 2012 2:30 PM - 3:10 PM BST Register at: Agile methods originated with tools and techniques optimised for small co-located teams able to engage directly with business stakeholders. However, many of the principles of Agile Software Development appear equally applicable to larger organisations. Typically as project teams grow the team is split along discipline or structural grounds (i.e. component teams). In this session we will discuss the impact that these decisions have on a team’s agility and how alternative structures can support improvements in team agility. A further aspect of this discussion is what we refer to in Agile circles as Product Ownership. While in early Agile teams an 8 person team might have access to a single Product Owner, in larger teams Product Ownership may a responsibility best shared. By attending this webinar you will learn: - How organisations of different sizes are addressing the issue of Scaling Agile to different sizes of project - What are the implications of some of the common scaling strategies - How does Product Ownership need to change as team sizes increase We will consider a number of strategies for Product Ownership at scale and how these change as project teams grow from 10s to 100s to 1000s. While discussions of this type can seem academic this session is built on real examples collected over the last 3-5 years. This webinar is part of our MAKING AGILE WORK WEBINAR SERIES.
