Continuous Discussions (#c9d9): Episode 26 Recap – Agile in Large Enterprises: How it’s Done

Agile-memeThe Agile Manifesto, published over a decade ago, contained some “radical ideas” to orient teams around delivering valuable software to market.

Agile now forms the basis of DevOps and Continuous Delivery efforts in large and small organizations alike.

How are Agile practices different for Large Enterprises, and what are some challenges and benefits of the same?

Earlier today we had a great time on #c9d9 talking about some of the challenges and best practices for implementing and fostering Agile in large enterprises, at scale.

  • Why do Agile in the enterprise?
  • Where should you begin your journey?
  • Should Agile be centralized or decentralized in a large organization?
  • And what are some best practices and tips for what enterprises should do – and stop doing – on their path to Agile?
