Managing Agile: Increasing Adoption While Retaining Control

While agile methodologies have had tremendous success in task-oriented teams, many larger businesses have been slower to embrace them as a corporate standard. From budget forecasting to performance benchmarking and accountability, agile presents new high-level management challenges to large enterprises, and its reliance on face-to-face interaction conflicts with the increasingly time-shifted, geographically distributed nature of the modern workforce.

This session will examine the inhibitors to agile adoption, and examine the procedural and technological changes that might help enterprises transition without losing control.
