Large-scale agile adoptions often fall at one of two hurdles: 1. The organization selects a specific agile method or framework which it then tailors to produce the ultimate, one-size fits all company specific agile method. One that typically entails enforcing a level of prescription and governance at odds with agility and the diversity of work found in most software development organizations. 2. Although successful locally the early agile adopters fall out of governance and never link themselves into the broader organizational units, programmes, or portfolios that sponsor and fund them.

These and many other hurdles can be overcome if you are agile with your methods and processes, and adopt a practice independent, result-focussed approach to governance, compliance and process assurance.

In this hands-on workshop, with case studies drawn from many large-scale agile adoptions including KPN and Munich Re, attendees will learn how to empower teams to own and evolve their methods, understand where they are, monitor progress and health, share their practices and experiences, and define result based governance and compliance practices

This session uses the emerging SEMAT / OMG Essence standard, kernel and state cards to get hands on with results-based check points, check lists and health checks.
