With the proven success of Agile Software Development, visionary leaders are inquiring about and applying “this Agile thing” elsewhere in their organizations — with mixed results. Many people attempt to simply apply “software agile” to non-software organizations or non-software departments. This seems like it might work in theory, but practically, you need to determine what agile “rules” will work and which will not in your specific environment. Determining what adds value and what does not can be challenging when starting with agile.
Agile Beyond Software is a course designed exclusively for people and teams who want to create Agile Companies — utilizing agile to improve their organizations outside of software departments. Explore where Agile makes sense for your organization and learn how to successfully adopt Agile to maximize business value within your unique culture, challenges and goals.
