Mind the gap – incorporating the change agenda into scaled Agile. Lynda Girvan

In Lynda Girvan’s Agile On The Beach 2019 talk she discusses the problems that compromise the delivery of value and how to incorporate people, process and policy changes into scaled agile so business value can be realised.

More and more organisations are turning to scaled Agile methods and frameworks to understand dependencies between development teams when delivering complex in-house products. Even though scaled agile is not explicitly limited to delivering just IT, scant mention is made of the full range of activities necessary to deliver the required business impact. The result is that IT gets delivered at scale, but not the change required within the business to adopt the new technology.

Lynda Girvan has over 25 years experience in business and systems development as a consultant, professional trainer and practitioner in both public and private sectors. Lynda has extensive experience of adding value to organisations at a variety of levels including coaching Agile development teams or helping board level change projects. Lynda’s particular strength is applying business analysis and Agile techniques together to help organisations overcome challenging business problems.

Lynda explored this topic as co-author of the BCS book, ‘Agile and Business Analysis’ published in 2017. Lyn is Head of Profession for business analysis at CMC Partnership Consultancy Ltd and their Lead Agile BA and coach. Lyn is a regular speaker who has provided key note talks at European conferences on Agile and business analysis.
