Keynote: Big Change - Were The Agile Text Books Break Down

IBM has been on an agile journey for over five years now with thousands of developers working in diverse environments most of which involve geographically dispersed teams operating at scale. In this session Tony shares where IBM is on the journey, what challenges have IBM solved, what is still left to be solved and how has IBM created a large scale agile ecosystem in such a complex and classically structured organisation.

This is a from the trenches session based on Tony's experiences coaching, facilitating and working in the IBM labs with the teams and the executives.

 

What does good and bad smell like in the large?

Based reviews and coaching of big agile projects with over 100 people or more working on them, IBM share what they've learnt about what to do more of, what do less off and what to avoid entirely. IBM is also keen for others working on large agile projects to join the discussion as we continue to learn what good and bad smell like in the large.
