There are many talks about implementation of Agile, Scrum and Kanban, about being successful with all the development practices, but very few sources are talking about Agile organization. How to build it, and what it really is.

Building an Agile organization is not just about using Scrum or Kanban in development teams and prioritizing functionality based on business value and fast customer feedback. There is something more, applicable to the whole organization level. Surprisingly using just few frameworks the organization could be transformed into agile company despite of current organization structure, power structures and company culture.

Even the small companies are often struggling when it comes to the expression of Agile organization. And for huge enterprises it's often even impossible to imagine how shall the company change. Does it mean we don't need any managers? How shall we structure our teams and departments? Shall we change the org chart to matrix or the other way around? How shall we organize ourselves? We can't afford any chaos, so how about keep all the agile just in out IT? Those and similar questions are often come up.

Based on our experiences with Agile transformations in both small companies and large enterprises we come to conclusion that Agile culture grows on top of the ability to build good teams. And as this competence is widely underestimated and rarely used on daily basis in the companies, we have developed the Tulming framework which extends the fundamentals of team theories, combines them with Agile principles and values and adopts them to create together an Agile mindset in the organization.

At the end of this talk, you will not only understand the Tulming framework, but you also get an implementation strategy that you can start immediately applying in your organization.
