Applying an Agile approach at an enterprise often involves some level of organizational transformation and takes a lot of skill. This course will help you understand how to plan and manage an enterprise-level Agile transformation.
It is well-known that an Agile development approach is not likely to work effectively unless it is well-aligned with a company’s business. Successfully applying Agile at an enterprise level can be complex and requires knowledge of how the business works at different levels of management; how the development process works (Agile, plan-driven, or hybrid); and how the two fit together. In this course, Planning and Managing Enterprise-level Agile Transformations, you will learn the approach needed to customize your development process to fit the nature of the company’s business. First, you’ll discover why an enterprise-level Agile transformation is necessary, Next, you’ll identify the typical obstacles for doing a successful Agile transformation, Then, you’ll explore the role of change management in developing a successful Agile transformation. Finally, you’ll learn what factors to consider in developing an implementation plan for an Agile transformation. When you're finished with this course, you will have a good foundation of knowledge to know how to plan and manage a successful enterprise-level Agile transformation.

Course Overview Hi. My name is Chuck Cobb. I'm the author of The Project Manager's Guide To Mastering Agile. That will be the third book I've published to date on Agile project management, and I've also published two earlier books on business excellence. There are some very significant challenges and obstacles associated with developing an enterprise‑level Agile approach that is well aligned with the company's business. In addition, some amount of change management might be needed for a successful, Agile transformation. Here's an overview of the modules in this course. We're going to start with an in‑depth discussion of alignment and value disciplines. Then we're going to discuss enterprise level, agile transformations, including the role of corporate culture and change management. And finally, we're going to talk about developing an implementation plan. This course is part of an overall curriculum for Agile Business Management that consists of three learning paths. This course is the second of two courses in the Enterprise‑level Agile Business Management learning path. The goal of this learning path is to help prepare business people to take a leadership role in successfully leading large, complex, enterprise‑level projects and successfully applying an Agile approach to their business at an enterprise‑level. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Agile Business Management with the Planning and Managing Enterprise‑level Agile Transformations course, at Pluralsight.
