Fireside Chat with Forrester: Why Adoption of Agile is still a struggle after 20+ years

While there are many different paths to enterprise agility, doing it at scale and with consistency is not easy. A recent Forrester report shows that 69% of global organizations have adopted agile practices, but the vast majority of those – 74% – have been at this for only two years or less. How many companies are seeing real, transformational value?

Whether the approach is “big bang” or “ad hoc”, some organizations have done better in delivering real value when scaling Agile to the whole organization. That means making it stretch from business and technology leaders through to delivery teams and customers.

Tune in on a conversation between featured guest, Margo Visitacion, Vice President and Principal Analyst of enterprise agile planning and delivery practices at Forrester, and Tony Ludwig, Digital.ai Solution Architect, as they discuss:

  • How to achieve strategic alignment
