Laying the groundwork for Agile
3 Lectures 12:15

Many teams start out by thinking of Agile like any new tool set, almost like they're training on how to play a new sport. First, you learn the equipment, then you learn how to swing, then you learn how to catch, and then, finally, the team is playing well together. But, if you see Agile as simply a new set of tools, then you're unlikely to have any real productivity gains.

In this section we go over how to get your organization on board by not starting to promise immediate results. That type of expectation is almost sure to fizzle. Instead, start by listing the challenges you have with your current projects.

Preview 03:50

There are many different ways to start promoting Agile within your organization. Often, you'll want to convince several groups of stakeholders. The two groups of Stakeholders you'll usually have are the Executive sponsors and Development managers. When you're starting Agile in your organization, these groups are interested in very different things.

Sr. Technical Cross Platform Program Manager

Hello!

Thanks for looking at my courses. I am excited to bring you some awesome lessons I have learned along the way. I also love to talk about my favorite products that really help me stay ahead of the curve. I am an Architect, Developer, Product/Project Manger, and humble hustler focusing on building next generation application.

I am currently working as a Sr. Technical Cross Platform Program Manager at a Fortune 500 company building technology-driven marketing solutions with global reach and Netflix scale. I lead teams of developers to new heights by giving top of the line guidance on product deliverables, organizational techniques, and in general kicking butt. I hope you find my courses enjoyable and please contact me if you have any questions or would like any additional content covered that is not in one of the courses.

I am a PMP expert and PRINCE2 consultant.
