RallyON 2014 Europe - The Agile Cultural Transformation Journey
In January 2013, Travis Perkins Group, a FTSE 100 company, embarked on its biggest IT transformation by adopting Agile Scrum and Scaled Agile Framework across its IT department. To put it in perspective, it is a department of over 400 people, supporting 17 brands across 4 major divisions, 25000 people and a turn over of over £5 billion. The transformation didn't leave any stone unturned, from structural change, governance, ways of working, strategic focus to uprooting and revising established relationship and links with its businesses and central functions. Obviously, the larger the organisation, the bigger the challenges are for scaling Agile.
