Many IT executives that I’ve spoken to have found great success with their agile development teams. Greater efficiency. Happier users. Faster cycle times. However, when they look beyond their agile teams, key roadblocks keep popping up. Bottlenecks with getting so many more sprints into production. Hybrid water-scrum-fall projects. Staying compliant with ever increasing regulations and standards. Disparate tools and distributed teams. Multiple environments and platforms. The list goes on and on, especially for enterprise IT organizations.
When it comes to agile in enterprise IT, the tension of speed versus control can seem impossible to resolve. However, some IT organizations have taken a process-based view to make the entire application delivery process more agile. They evaluate the process touch points between stakeholders across the entire lifecycle – from initial request to final release into production – to become truly agile. Orchestrating agility has helped IT organizations realize dramatic results, including 40% faster development, 50% lower costs, and 15X more releases.
How do they do it? Here are 4 steps to deliver agility across the entire IT organization, and not just within development.
To get more detail about these 4 steps and learn more about orchestrating agility across the entire application delivery lifecycle in your organization, attend my presentation at the ALM Expo, a virtual conference from November 9-10. Register – it’s free!
