Case Study: Engineering-focused, Scaled Agile Roll-out at Standard and Poors
A large company moves to agile, when the going gets tough they abandon all their agile processes and revert back to old ways. Which is now a combination of scrum and waterfall and delivery is worse than before they started. Usually next is the CTO gets removed and a new one comes in. Then the new CTO comes in again and proclaims we are all moving to agile and re-energizes the org and again they start their transformation. Have you seen this movie before? This movie played out three times this way for Standard and Poors and finally the third time was the charm and now the transformation is successful. But why was this time different, what makes them think this time it will stick, and how do they know as they continue to grow that they won’t revert back to old ways. Join the CTO of S&P Platts division Stan Guzik and the Agile Transformation Lead Mary Thorn discuss their engineering lead agile transformation and why they are set up for future growth.
