Enterprise-level Agile

This category contains posts related to scaling Agile to large, complex, projects and successfully implementing an enterprise-level Agile transformation.

Doing enterprise-level Agile successfully can be a very difficult and challenging thing to do and involves:

  • Scaling a development process as needed to handle larger and more complex enterprise-level projects
  • Developing a strategy to integrate an Agile development process with a company’s business
  • Designing and implementing an effective Agile transformation for a business including whatever level of cultural change and change management might be needed
