    Agile and Lean values and principles are shaping the thinking of most organizations today. Scaling Agile for the Enterprise is a challenge that many large organizations face as they implement Agile Teams across more and more of their operations. Coordinating multiple Teams that are working on multiple projects can seem daunting. Our 4th annual Agile Lean Summit 2019 will focus on “Taking Agile and Lean to the Enterprise.”

    Agile primarily manifests itself in the development of new products and services. According to the 2017 12th Annual State of Agile Report by VersionOne, a major theme of this report is that “Agile is Expanding within the Enterprise“. The report shows that 25% of the respondents say that all or almost all of their teams are agile, whereas only 8% reported that in 2016.

    In addition, lean is literally turning many large organizations into value-focused entities. Lean tools and concepts enable organizations to look at their organization in an entirely new way; a way which is focused on adding value to the end user and customer.”

    The 2019 Agile Lean Summit will have 4 innovative track topics:

    Agile In Action

    Track 1

    1- Agile in Action

    • Including “Re-Invigorating Retrospectives with Liberating Structures,” “Cultivating Capability – Surviving and Sustaining with Fewer People,” and “Co-location: It’s Not You, It’s Me Coping with the Realities of Global Teams.”

    Scaling Agile to Enterprise

    Track 2

    2 - Scaling Agile to Enterprise

    • Including “Big Agile is Coming, but are Big Technology Leaders Ready?” “Large Scale Scrum: More with LeSS,” and “Effective Planning at Scale…It’s About More Than the Event (or Why Your PI Planning Session Isn’t Eliminating the Chaos)”

    Agile Lean Deployment

    Track 3 - 

    3- Agile Lean Deployment

    • Including “Keeping it Lean – Deploy and Enjoy!!!” “Agile Transformation in the Age of Modern Delivery Methods,” and “There is No Silver Bullet: Metrics Reflect Your Organization’s Culture.”
