Many software organizations today ask “How do we make an agile transformation and what benefit will we get?” ? Should you transition your organization to agile all at once or proceed more iteratively, team by team? ? This talk describes Salesforce.com’s year of living dangerously, where we moved our entire R&D organization to an agile model. ? The key difference in our approach was to throw the switch on 30 teams all at once. ? Most agile experts thought this was a crazy approach; however, in the end our transition became one of the fastest and largest agile transitions. ? In just 3 short months we moved our entire team from a waterfall-basedapproach to an iterative, Scrum based methodology we’ve named ADM (Adaptive Development Methodology). ? Over the course of the year we have refined and measured our progress and learned many lessons. ? This approach was a great risk for the organization that has ultimately delivered dramatic results and extraordinary business value.

 

The Globalization talk will focus on how globalization is impacting the world and the US economy and what it means for the future of a skill-based society.
