Session Speaker: Antoinette Coetzee
About the talk:
Agile at the team level has been around for 25 years. Over the last few years it has grown from product development framework to IT department approach, from the software development arena to the larger organisation. We have seen the advent of scaled frameworks like SAFe, we have seen an explosion of tools, we are now onto Business Agility and the application of Agile in non-software companies. Yet most organisations are still not happy with the improvements brought about by an Agile way of working. Why? In this talk we will explore the issue of agility from multiple angles. We will look at the impact of Leadership, Organisational Structure, Culture, Products and Technical Practices, to name but a few. Please join us to dismantle some of your own hidden assumptions and find a path into great agility!
Understand the difference between Agile and enterprise agility;
understand how leaders can help or hinder;
understand the main impediments to the growth of agility in organisations;
realise that agility is a journey without a road map
