Agile Transformation has long been a viral trend globally for years, but it has not been successful in big enterprises in Asia. On the same note, there have been attempts for ten years to bring change into our company, Samsung, but was always fruitless due to various cultural and environmental obstacles. Nonetheless, we did not give up- resulting in wave of agile transformation in 2015, leading to creation of Samsung Agile Core Team, dedicated for developing products based on agile practices. For the first time in Korea, as a big enterprise we have made the grounds for Agile breakthrough.
Formation of our Agile team is meaningful because through this we were able to overcome the environmental obstacles and strict processes of Samsung. From dependencies on numerous individual departments which have their own affinities and goals, it was not easy to break off into one whole agile team. I would like to share the practical approaches taken that led to our current team, along with how we are working to penetrate into Huge enterprise culture.
Information for Program Team:
We at Samsung SDS tried Agile transformation for over 10 years. We did fail several times and learned a lot of things through them. As a result of many efforts, exceptionally, Samsung has been gaining many meaningful progresses. This presentation might be too short to share all of these lessons, but still we want to help other big companies like us to gain good insights about bottlenecks and how to breakthrough for enterprise wide innovation based on Agile approaches.
