The 5th Agile Community of Practice (Agile CoP) Forum presents - Agile Transformation Journey in IBM

IBM needs no introduction, but what you may not be aware of is that they are currently undertaking one of the world's largest Agile transformation.

Reinvention is at the core of IBM and they are on a journey to reinvent IBM as an Agile organisation. As one of the world's largest organisations, that meant nearly half a million people needing to learn, do and be Agile.

Agile Transformation Leader of IBM, Author and Speaker, Mr Evan Leybourn, will be sharing his experience, as well as other transformations, to show you how a focus on business agility, from sales to HR, is as important as technical agility.

An Agile Community of Practice (Agile CoP) Forum

The Agile Community of Practice (Agile CoP) is made up of passionate software engineering professionals, who believe in Agile practices for software development. Agile CoP was formed with the objective of promoting the awareness and practice of Agile adoption through sharing, learning and support of practitioners.
