“Most organizations expect to get better solutions, faster, by embracing agile methods — but few go “all in” even in their IT shops. So, how can an enterprise successfully adopt as much agile as they need, and where it will do the most good, within their larger enterprise context? We’ll talk about how to be agile enough, how to build working interfaces between agile and traditional aspects of the organization, and about everything from tooling for agile to performance evaluation for staff in agile workgroups,” notes John Burke, CTO of Nemertes.

Event Description

There’s a lot of hype around the capabilities of agile methodology. But where is Agile most effective in practice?

This virtual seminar and panel discussion focuses on the lessons learned from the Agile Revolution. Agile is not just a tool, but needs to look collectively at people, process, and technology to be truly effective. We must look at problems and see what we are trying to solve. We need to think about things that connect to each other and create transformational value.

The panel discussion will focus on the real benefits of an agile model, and of the kinds of modifications financial services firms make to the generic version of agile in order to reap the greatest benefits in their own operational, legal, regulatory, and industry contexts.
