Avoiding the Chaos of an Agile Transformation

Agile is not a fairy tale. You have to face real life challenges well prepared in order to succeed. The reality is: the bigger and older your organization is, the more difficult it is to pass through process level changes and that's when Chaos is born. Resolving all the issues with Chaos could potentially take years. Peter will share his story of one of his projects where he had to face numerous obstacles as a Test Manager in achieving proper Agile implementation and to raise the quality of the products of his client.

Some of the obstacles included: agile ceremonies not followed, conflicts between management and subject matter experts, numerous technical difficulties blocking test automation implementation, and no buy-in from client’s test automation architect. Peter will show how to tackle these difficulties with strong-minded yet polite communication, proper time management, process level strategy changes and a well designed test automation solution.
