About The Talk
Change doesn’t happen by accident. Change must get planned, orchestrated, and held accountable. Many organizations have a Project Management Office responsible for setting standards, providing resources, managing work, and making sure the organization’s work is visible. We need to discover a similar mechanism for orchestrating an Agile Transformation, an Agile Transformation Office, if you will. If such an office were to exist, what might it look like? What might it be responsible for? How would that office ensure the Transformation was on track? And what would it do once the Transformation was over?
This talk will explore some of the more common elements of an Agile Transformation Office. How you create one. What services it offers. And its overarching responsibility to responsibly lead change. We will look at how it selects and supports pilots and develops Transformation roadmaps. We will explore the role of Agile playbooks, Agile tooling, metrics, and assessments. We will explore how training and coaching fits in and what you do with the rest of the organization when it’s excited to go but isn’t on the near-term roadmap. Finally, we will explore the relationship between the Agile Transformation Office and the Office of the CIO and what it looks like once the Transformation is complete.
