Implementing Agile is a huge organizational change, and it's
difficult. Today's organizations are complex adaptive systems that
will react in unpredictable ways when change is introduced. Some
consider Agile as processes and tools while others consider Agile
as a mindset.
Organizations are far too complex to assume one path to
agility is the right path for everyone. Jason Little has been in
the software industry since 1996 and has been helping organizations
adopt Agile practices since 2007 as a Scrum Master, Product Owner
and Coach. In this video Jason will show you a 4 step model that
will help you shape your path to business agility. In addition,
this video talks about how to leverage the Lean Startup method even
if your organization is not a startup.
