Achieving organizational agility in a large, complex company is a meaty challenge. Do you start bottom-up? Or top down? The truth is you need to start both simultaneously and try to meet in the middle. In this session we'll be talking about all of the things that you do at the executive leadership level provide the support, funding and conditions to create a successful agile program that will lead to high-performing teams. Equally important is creating new behaviours at the leadership level. We'll also cover what's necessary at the team level to build an agile team, behaviour and practices in order to drive the results needed to remove the next barrier on your progression to agility. This is the story of what we're doing at a large Canadian financial institution. Throughout the session we will be bouncing between what's happening at all levels to create and sustain a successful agile program. You will leave this session with insights in how to create a strategy that manages the complexities of rolling out modern engineering and leadership practices in traditional non-software organizations.
