AgileDC is almost here! Not only do we have 11 speakers representing Excella, but we are also premiering our Manifesto for Scaling Agility at next week’s conference. Below is a quick teaser of what to expect from the Excella Agilists behind the Manifesto for Scaling Agility, and our diverse selection of expert speakers.
Manifesto for Scaling Agility
At Excella, we believe that continuous learning and knowledge-sharing fuels innovative thinking. The company created space—the time and the opportunity—for our Agilists to document their experiences with Agile at scale. The result is a new way to approach the challenges of scaling, the Manifesto for Scaling Agility. It is a collection of values and principles that reflect the collective experience of Excella’s Agile practitioners, and a fresh perspective on a frequently discussed topic. There are several different scaling approaches, and the Manifesto team has experience with most of them—SAFe, LeSS, [email protected], Kanban, Nexus and others. Through their work, they have learned that these approaches have to be adapted to be successful. The Manifesto contains their recommendations for doing that, regardless of framework or methodology.
