Small is Beautiful Workshop by Sanjiv Augustine  

Small is Beautiful - The Evolution of Agile to Complex, Multi-Project Environments by Sanjiv Augustine

Over the past years, successful practitioners have applied Agile methods like Scrum and eXtreme Programming (XP) on individual projects to cut development lead times, improve product quality and reduce engineering cost. For instance, time-to-market reductions in the range of 30-50% have been reported by leading companies. Now, as these practitioners seek to expand on their initial successes, they face many complex obstacles posed by the realities of today's business environment: distributed teams, outsourced development, interfacing with 'non-agile' vendors and customer organizations, continued cost cutting, complex product suites, and the pressing need for innovation.

How can agile practitioners apply the fundamental tenets of Agile - integrated small teams, small releases, sufficient-to-purpose, etc - to provide the next round of significant returns from their Agile investment? Sanjiv Augustine of LitheSpeed will lead a workshop discussion on adopting a philosophy of smallness within bigness to allow the scaling of Agile practices beyond individual projects to deliver process improvements in complex environments with multiple projects and products.
