Unleashing Agile Transformation: A Scrum and Azure DevOps Approach
Predavanje je v angleškem jeziku.
What are the chances that right now, your company is planning, actively running, or trying to repair a (failed) agile transformation? Based on our recent experience, we'd say that the odds are quite high. Are you interested in hearing more about our unique approach to succeeding with agile transformations? Introducing agility through Scrum and DevOps practices and tools can be done on the team, department, or organizational level and is one of the most complex endeavors any organization can undertake. It requires a sustainable approach since production work cannot simply halt, awaiting the completion of the transformation. Moreover, every organization is unique, and so too will be their Scrum and DevOps implementation. This is why we at Agilist IT have developed a unique approach to introducing Scrum and DevOps, with the primary focus on ensuring the sustainability of the transformation. At the heart of our approach is the application of Scrum to facilitate the introduction of Scrum and DevOps. We set up a Scrum-based "optimization process" for transformation activities, running it concurrently with the company's "production process" that is undergoing the transformation. This allows teams to learn by doing, and to iteratively and incrementally introduce changes to the way they do their production work, all while utilizing the power of Azure DevOps as the 'glue' that binds the processes at all levels. Join us to explore our approach which has proven successful in several ongoing transformations. We will explain how we set up the Optimization Scrum Team and what's on its backlog, and highlight the most common pitfalls to avoid.
