Once you have learned what Agile is, your next question will be “how do I start using Agile?”
Knowing what Agile is, is quite different from knowing how to roll out an Agile process. The Agile Adoption stage will focus on lessons learned from rolling out an Agile process. Specifically, we are looking for presentations that address the following questions:
- How can you assess your potential for becoming Agile before starting a migration?
- How can you minimize delivery risk when moving to an Agile process?
- How can you implement an Agile process that recognizes your unique business model, customer, and company culture?
- What does the Agile migration process look like in application?
- What are the key foundation steps for starting a move to Agile?
- What are the best practices for getting executives, managers, customers and team members to buy-in to moving to an Agile process?
- Can you mix Agile practices with your existing processes when migrating to Agile?
- Can you migrate too quickly? Can you migrate too slowly?
- How can you sell adopting Agile during the current financial crisis?
- Should a move to Agile be driven from the top, the bottom or both at the same time?
If you have experience leading teams or companies to a more Agile process, we would love to have you lead a session. No doubt there are many consultants who have experience in this area and we welcome your sessions, but we would also like to learn about the experiences of employees who have rolled out an Agile process and lived with the team afterwards.
