Agile software development has been gaining momentum and mind share in software development circles for well over a decade. Its emphasis on incrementally delivering business value by teams that are both cross-functional and self-organized has resulted in getting innovative products to market faster. However, most large enterprises have failed to embrace the Agile movement even though they have earnestly tried by sending scores of their people through Certified Scrum Master and similar Agile training programs. What has been lacking is an Agile framework that addresses the needs beyond the Team. In order to succeed, the Program and Portfolio levels of an organization must be fully engaged in building an Agile Enterprise.
This presentation will discuss advances in enterprise scale agility and present a framework that has been proven to scale to meet the needs of large product development organizations such as BMC, SalesForce.com, Google, John Deere and Nokia.
