When you follow the Agile process, your team is likely to deliver value and produce good results. At the same time, getting great results consistently warrants deep involvement from all players – Senior Management, Teams, Product Owners and Scrum Masters.
The real breakthrough will occur when the organization becomes a true learning organization, where employees feel empowered to create shared visions and work toward that vision through personal mastery and team learning.

Over five years ago, the authors began their Agile journey by participating in a large scale transformation from waterfall to Agile. Their path has led them through the initial Agile rollout to a new plateau of sustaining Agile, where most people understand the mechanics and principles of Agile. The authors will share points to keep in mind during an Agile roll out, sustaining an Agile organization and their plans on how to evolve to a learning organization.

Take away from this session would be answers to the following questions:
• What does it mean to sustain Agile in large organization?
• How to design a culture that supports the sustainment of Agile?
• How can the organization support a move toward a learning organization?
• What is blocking the organization from moving forward?
• How do we encourage continuous improvement?
• How to support/encourage communication across teams?
