Scaling Agile for the Large Enterprise – with a podcast

As we begin 2019, we are looking back to a few years ago when I was interviewed by Cornelius Fichtner from The Project Management Podcast about Scaled Agile for The Enterprise. This is just as relevant today as it was then. Large enterprises continue to struggle to scale agile and we continue to fine tune our process to help them be successful.

Almost all large enterprises are making some transition to agile practices. There are many approaches to scale agile in the large enterprise, and we give an overview of 4 of the most common scaled approaches and their limitations (SAFe, DaD, Less, and Nexus). The more interesting part of the podcast starts about 10 minutes in where we cover the most common challenges our customers’ teams are facing when scaling agile and provides suggestions to overcome those challenges!

As a side note, I presented on this topic at PMI’s 2016 Global Congress in San Diego and Cornelius and I talked right after that. We had a lot of fun in the interview. His podcast has been named on of the top for Project Managers On the Go. Since he’s used to interviewing project managers,  I threw him for a loop at the end when pointing out business analysts are here to stay too.
