Using lean startup model to foster Agile adoption in multinational organizations


Published on

In this session I’m showing a model that multinational organizations can use to foster the adoption of agile. This model is based on lean startup, understandig Agile initiatives from different countries as startups, it uses the validated learning cycles of every organization to create a validated learning knowledge base with the performed experiments of agile practices. This “”validated learning knowledge base”" is co-created by the members of the internal international Agile community.
