Common Pitfalls When Moving to Agile

Moving your organization to Agile is akin to moving to a new country with a new language and culture. No amount of training can prepare you for every challenge.

I have presented versions of this presentation at Project World 2008 in Toronto, and for the PMI Southern Ontario Chapter, as well as in my work consulting with clients on transitioning to a more Agile Methodology. People have been asking me to make it available, so I am pleased to post it here.

Key objectives of this presentation:
  • Learn the key benefits of Agile Methodologies versus more traditional approaches
  • Understand the major issues organizations face when adopting agile processes
  • Recognize the critical success factors that are needed to be successful with Agile
