Agile Information Technology Special Interest Group 

Enabling and Leading Enterprise-wide Agile Adoption 
February 20, 2019 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM 
How can you help your organization be more Agile? 

In 2019, Agile IT Special Interest Group will kick-off with a new steering committee that will charter a new mandate for the group. Over the last two-and-a-half years, the SIG has addressed a variety of issues around Agile adoption and deployment within the IT sector. We will continue with this tradition, but enhance the focus to look at driving Agile concepts and adoption across the enterprise and also look at embracing DevOps paradigms as our members mature and refine their Agile practices.

As companies look at more wide-scale adoption of Agile practices along the enterprise, IT teams are in a perfect position to lead this charge. Adopting Agile across multiple business lines and product groups require a closer examination of foundational processes, organizational structures, operating models and relationships. But, the rewards of being innovative, nimble and responsive in a fast-evolving business environment is undeniable. Many businesses entrenched in legacy operating environments, marred in organizational malaise would gladly welcome a more invigorating approach like the Agile methodology.

This meeting of the Agile IT Special Interest Group will be devoted to looking at a more wide-scale adoption of Agile methodology and practices along the enterprise. We will hear examples of companies that are trying to scale Agile across the organization and how IT can assist the rest of the organization embrace Agile and drive better results. This would be an exceptional opportunity for IT leaders to invite business leaders who are truly interested in transforming to a digital enterprise that is geared towards delivery.
