Why Read This Report

While companies are increasingly adopting Agile, for the most part these processes remain limited to the single project level. Agile thought leaders have not provided much clear or detailed guidance about scaling Agile practices to the enterprise level, where many governance issues are ready to pounce. To make Agile work within enterprise governance, managing the people issues first is critical. Next, organizations must apply a common-sense approach to processes, enabling transitioning teams to manage demand and deliver efficiently without adding layers of bureaucracy. In addition, organizations should use tools to provide the transparency necessary to ensure that demand is prioritized and selected based on the value the finished product will deliver to the organization.
