Can Agile Methods Actually Scale?

Listen Now

“Agile” is one of the buzziest workplace practices today – all about moving fast and breaking things, and iterating to perfection. The practice has picked up fans and detractors, as more and more companies have left waterfall methodologies in their wake. But is agile the way to go for all teams, and can it actually scale?

Host Christine Dela Rosa moderates a fiery debate between Kelvin Yap and Dominique Ward over the limitations and opportunities of agile at scale.

In this episode, you’ll also hear from Lutron Electronics’ Ben Bard about how scaling agile united his company’s hardware and software teams and from Excella’s Nicole Spence-Goon about the empowerment that scales agile gives teams. Harvard’s Dr. Heidi Gardner joins to share her research about the failure rate of scaling agile, and Matthias Orgler illustrates the risks of being fake agile, or “fragile.”
