About this Case Study

This session explores some of the lessons Matt has learned from his experience in large agile programmes over the last 10 years. If you aren't familiar with the difference between agile adoption and agile transformation and you're involved in either, then this is for you.

Equally, if you would like to know why rolling out scrum in technology is the wrong way to start your enterprise agile plans, again this will prove invaluable. Matt has seen a range of good and bad adoption strategies over the years, which will be highlighted and discussed, enabling participants to have better context when considering their own next agile implementation.

This session is aimed at agile change agents and IT leaders who are involved in adopting agile at a company-wide level, and will touch on strategy, culture, planning and implementation across the spectrum of a typical organisation.
