Only the Agile Survive: Understanding the Business Case for Agile

Why an organization should consider the transition to Agile methods.

As a result of the recent recession, many organizations were forced to reduce head count, salaries, and benefits to shore up their finances in an attempt to ride out the downturn. Now, as the economy slowly recovers, organizations are looking for ways to satisfy their customers within the boundaries of the “new normal,” which is a reduced cost structure and increased pressure to deliver more, faster.
Organizations also need a way to divert funding from one project to another when a higher priority initiative emerges. Agile methods have proven to be an effective way to address these challenges.

Agenda
1. New Normal
2. Naked Agile
3. Why Agile?
4. A Final Thought on Agility and Survival

Walk away points for each agenda item:

1. What is going on in the marketplace that necessitates a change in the way we currently do business
2. Agile stripped of the fluff. The bare essentials. What it is and what it isn't
3. Why is the market moving to towards Agile solutions
4. Personal observations of successful implementations including a personal experience with diverting almost $200,000 USD in project funds to another higher priority initiative, which was only possible with Agile methods.
