We might start to think about agile approaches as a project change. However, if you want to “scale” agile, the entire culture changes. Here is a list of the series and how everything changes the organization’s culture:
- Defining “Scaling” Agile, Part 1: Creating Cross-Functional Feature Teams. Without feature teams, I don’t see how you can have the necessary collaboration for agile approaches to succeed. This is the beginning of moving from functional silos to product delivery.
- Defining “Scaling” Agile, Part 2: Program Management for Product Development. Program teams allow you to move from projects to programs with just enough organization. This is the extension of moving from small silos to involving much more of the organization to deliver value in the form of products.
- Defining “Scaling” Agile, Part 3: Creating Agile Product Development Capabilities. Adaptive and iterative planning at multiple levels provides the organization the ability to commit for now and not forever. This creates the beginning of a resilient organization.
