Scrum and XP have found a strong following in the development community. But most non-development groups (such as Web Administrators, Production Support, Security, Testing, and Users/Stake Holders) inside the enterprise are not only far from agile, that are not trying to move to be more agile. This session starts with a refresher on Scrum, then uses real experiences from large enterprise development projects to teach you how to effectively work with non-agile teams. Instead of trying to "convert" them, you'll learn strategies to adapt to their needs while remaining agile in the development realm.

You will learn:

  • How to work with Traditional PMO
  • How to work with DevOps and infrastructure teams
  • About moving QA, Designers, and so on to agile
