Every agile approach takes place within a given context - the corporation. Agile product or project development, especially within large corporation are facing here specific challenges provided by the larger framework. The common departmental structure is often experienced more like a burden than support. As well the organization's structure (yes, and of course as well its culture) can be experiences as being more or less helpful. Yet still, in order to become successful the agile undertaking has to deal with these challenges.
In this session, I want to explore how departments like Human Resources, Legal, Marketing, Sales, yet as well Quality Control, or Operations can support and how can they hinder agility. Despite the challenges, the focus is on leveraging the departments in order to become successful. Thus, involving everyone who is affected early on and making them part of the agile approach is crucial. This session is based on my experiences working in large and distributed corporations, yet the variety of the participants' experience will make all the difference.
