Agile adoption is very reliant on the technical competence of the teams and how they work together, however the support of an engaged, lead by example executive team is critical. Discussions will include:

  • What are the key principles for successful change?
  • How should executives prepare?
  • What should an executive leadership team look like?
  • What resources and budget will be required?
  • How do you integrate software development with business change, business process re-engineering and all the other initiatives?
  • How do you measure success?

The discussion will review Deutsche Bank’s agile journey with SAFe. An amount of time should be reserved for a round table Q&A session.
