Abstract/Description

Enterprise organizations are increasingly adopting Agile as a way to better focus on adaptive value creation, customer satisfaction, and employee engagement. But how do you as a business leader and change agent know whether you’re getting the most out of your investment or that you continue to improve as an organization? Through a combination of key objective metrics, conscious observation, individual interviews and a third-party, independent assessment instrument, Intel is driving a strategic, data-centric approach to enterprise Agile adoption. In this workshop we will describe what this assessment methodology is and go through several interactive exercises to demonstrate how to use it. We will also provide a detailed case study of how Intel is using this methodology to continuously improve its Agile capabilities. Participants will gain an understanding of how an empirical, data-driven approach to enterprise transformation can lead to uncommon insights and help complement their own continuous improvement programs.
