ACT: A Planning Tool for Agile Change Agents: Jutta Eckstein, James Shore

When an organization makes a real effort to be Agile, they set in motion a series of changes that ripple throughout the entire organization. The side-effects are often surprising, and dealing with them can be challenging. In this session, Jutta Eckstein, Diana Larsen, and James Shore will present their Agile Change and Transformation (ACT) planning model. This model gives change agents a way to plan and understand their Agile change efforts. It provides a way to understand the context of a transformation, choose which changes to focus on, and decide whether to take a deterministic or adaptive approach. The ACT planning model is new and experimental. It's funded in part by the Agile Alliance's "Supporting Agile Adoption" program. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to try the model and help develop it further.
