Presentation: "KEYNOTE: Know the Way, Show the Way, Go the Way: Building the Lean|Agile Enterprise with the Scaled Agile Framework"

Time: Wednesday 17:00 - 17:50 / Location: Pendulum

Tired of the myths that Scrum, XP and Kanban don’t scale to the enterprise level? Tired of management resistance to the real change that is required to scale these methods to the next level? If so, this tutorial is for you. In this tutorial, Leffingwell dispels these myths and describes the Scaled Agile Framework™, a public-facing set of proven practices for Agile Teams, Agile Programs, Agile Architecture and Agile Program and Portfolio Management, which have been used to successfully scale Lean|Agile development to hundreds—and even thousands—of practitioners at companies like BMC Corporation, John Deere and many others. In addition, Leffingwell focuses on the critical role software development managers, leaders and executives must play in implementing and supporting the framework so as to more readily achieve the full business benefits of enterprise agility.
