What does it take to have a successful Agile Transformation?

Hey, CMMI Appraiser – A lot of us are frustrated with Waterfall, and momentum is building inside the company for Agile. What does it take for an ML3 organization to transition from Waterfall to Agile? ~ Emily K.

Hey, Emily,

As I say to every software and engineering professional who dreams of escaping the heavy-handed, command-and-control Waterfall practices and embracing all the benefits of being Agile: You CAN get there. You just need a path.

Along your journey are many important steps. Transforming your organization takes training and preparation. It takes being tested with assessments on your readiness to adopt Agile. And it takes professional consulting to guide your Agile Transformation with the rigor and structure of CMMI, since that is the scalable operational framework that your organization has chosen to pursue for your performance improvement model.

What does it take to do it right? Find out by signing up for the newest Webinar in our “Everything You NEED to Know” Series: “Agile Transformation!”
