Agile COP: Agile Transformation is an Organizational Change: 11 Epics to Success

Agile COP: Agile Transformation is an Organizational Change: 11 Epics to Success

Learning Objective:

Transforming an organization from waterfall (or no formal project management) to Agile evidence analysis

Despite all the books and blogs about large-scale transformations to Agile, there is almost no objective evidence. Only one scientific review had been published by Spring 2018, and it mostly found potentially biased articles by the people who led the changes. However, there are thousands of studies from the related field of organizational change (OC). Given that 2/3 of OC efforts fail, Agile change leaders can reduce their problems by using success factors from OC research. Well-proven models exist for overcoming barriers such as isomorphism, inertia, and resistance to change, but they are waterfall in form. This talk explains an evidence-based OC strategy using Agile to implement Agile. It describes 11 epics from a research paper and related user stories detailed on the open-source Full Stack Scrum(tm) site. The evidence suggests your only choice is between a disciplined, long-term, mindful effort... and failure. Learn how to succeed!
