What happens when the business side of your company, after seeing the success of Agile techniques used by your IT side, tries to use the same techniques and practices? This presentation will provide an overview of the Farm Credit Mid-America (FCMA) journey to Agile adoption within IT and its internal business partners. Scrum was first introduced within its application development team in 2008, then Kanban was introduced in 2011. Gradually adoption grew and now over two dozen IT and business teams have chosen to also adopt some of the same practices and techniques. Come hear FCMA’s story of cultivating an Agile work environment within and outside it’s IT department. See how the job of the developer, product owner and tester become easier with business-side Agile adoption. Learn some of the surprising benefits gained when IT and the business side of a company are utilizing similar approaches to agile work management.
