It is a period of civil war. Rebel Agilists have exposed the fallacy of using clunky PPM tools to manage projects, but must now show Executives and Finance how to deliver on the promises of Agile to the bottom line for organizations to find true peace.

"AgileWars" can break out in any organization due to a divergence of interests often sparked by individual motivators that are disincentives to teamwork. We'll visit a planet "buffet" across the galaxy with discussion of the 5 special ingredients that must be found on your trip to find success. Based on real-world experience, even when the vision is clear for connecting strategy to execution, challenges develop from the resistance to making the work visible. The difference between these two sides serves as the launching pad for diving into pragmatic strategies for success. The "book ends" of the message emphasize a core foundation required in a common Agile vocabulary across ALL roles in the organization and extending to a REAL "Change Culture" that must drive efforts to be successful.

Sounds great, BUT...the path can turn towards the dark side unless we engage the Business stakeholders in our Agile expedition. And just when you thought that Millennium Agile Tooling was ready to be ditched in a junkyard, we may just find the opportunity to empower teams to be a key enabler for real victory - with our only hope being that we find a True JEDI/AGILE MINDSET to wrap around it!

By borrowing lessons from our favorite science fiction movies, we will show how to use the 5 key ingredients to scale Agile to the enterprise level and bring a new hope to our Agile galaxy. If you're looking for a conversation, come actively participate to help bridge our heroes from the past back to the future!

5 key ingredients

  • Agile Vocabulary
  • Business Agility
