Successful Agile Transformations Require a Process
Agile Transformations normally require a change in corporate mindset. An Agile development team working well on its own will provide only minor impact on the whole enterprise. This change must permeate throughout the organization for meaningful effect.
Training must be provided so that Agile principles, once clearly understood, can be applied to daily decision making. These operating principles must be incorporated within the working relationships between the various organizational units. Alignment of the various processes and interactions should be directed towards the business goal.
Agile provides the means for an organization, having defined the business value it wishes to achieve, to easily focus its efforts on its goal.
The development of a transformation roadmap should enable the organization to align its resources in a controlled manner.
