WHY MOST AGILE TRANSFORMATIONS FAIL; What every executive wished they knew before making the switch

890 views

Published on

Many of us will chose to implement Agile, yet only a small minority of companies will realize its true benefits. We risk our reputations, our company resources, and sometimes even our careers to make the switch. Despite the risks involved, the potential rewards of; predictable release cycles, higher quality solutions, and re-energized teams are still worth it. In this executive briefing we will review case studies of Agile transformations and learn what can be done to ensure our success.
