Building an Agile organization doesn’t have to be a headache

Doing Agile at scale requires much more than just replicating techniques and practices across teams: it requires careful reflection and a sharp awareness of how an organization does — and doesn’t — work. Only then can we begin to build teams that are responsive to the opportunities enabled by technology.

Agile IT Organization Design demonstrates how to navigate the cultural and political waters of the modern organization, and explores how to lay the strong foundations to do Agile successfully. Taking in the structure, metrics, and habits needed to move fast without breaking things, this book will help you audit and identify existing challenges and uncover tactics and strategies to overcome them.

Sriram continues to share his insights as he helps clients with digital agility. He described the business-capability-aligned organization as an alternative to the traditional project-centric model. This approach is now recommended by Martin Fowler as a better alternative to bimodal or two-speed IT. Do check out the book’s companion web site for his latest posts.
