Agıle falls, so how to fıx ıt?
Thoughworks have been engaged several customers who had fed up, still trying or new starters, and the perception of Agile’s success is questionable because of wrong expectations on day one. Agile is not a way of implementation by the book, it reaches the best form within the organisation, culture, people, process, business, technology and willingness to change. We do try to find the best fit while working with clients in their office, in their development teams to optimise value stream, use technology and techniques according to their uniqueness.
This talk includes actual case studies from ThoughtWorks clients. There will be failures, lessons learnt, challenges we took, pain points in the journey, actual figures that define success and a checklist for foundations of agile software development. The talk will include engineering practices used, technologies chosen, roadmap for lean transformation from different projects/programs all over the world. And finally, guidelines to understand the current state of being agile (via Agile Fluency Model), the way of kick-start change, pinpoints to attack if you have similar issues in your organisation and a future backwards for an Agile transformation journey.
