Accelerate Exceptional: Our Journey to Agile
In 2016 the Executive Director of IT at Dean Health Plan challenged his leadership team to make significant, transformational improvements to how the Division delivers IT solutions. This challenge led to the transformation from a traditional waterfall SDLC model to the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). The transition changed how we do work in significant, and sometimes unexpected, ways. This presentation will cover highlights from our journey to agile, many hard-won lessons-learned, and our initial results.
