Agile techniques have consistently demonstrated their benefits for co-located, small project teams; however, many organizations want to gain similar benefits for their large scale, highly distributed projects. Join Bryan Campbell, CSM/PMP/ITIL as he draws upon more than 8 years of experience applying agile techniques to large scale projects and presents what’s involved in “Scaling Agile”.
Learn which techniques work most effectively and common mistakes to avoid, understand different organizational models that yield the greatest benefit in large scale settings and get some insight into cutting edge techniques that improve virtual collaboration. Bryan will also discuss a lightweight risk-management mechanism to ‘right-size’ the ceremony and formality often associated with large scale projects.
