Michel Löhr and Simon Roberts from ScrumCenter presented their view of the agile enterprise at Scrum Day 2011 in Darmstadt. They discussed some of the problems that occur in traditional, matrix-structured, waterfall-oriented organisations and proposed changes based on their experience coaching multiple agile enterprise transitions. The top three changes are:

  • Creating stable, product oriented teams.
  • Establishing a leaner approach to budgeting and financial control, with drastically reduced transaction costs.
  • Taking a more holistic approach by integrating agile product development with agile customer development (as proposed by the customer development and lean startup movements) – an integrated and empirical approach to both provides a good foundation for creating truly successful products.

Thank you very much to the people who attended, for the interesting questions and great feedback.
