Jennifer Kreiger, Chief Agile Architect at Red Hat speaks in this breakout session at Red Hat Summit 2017.
In 2015, the Red Hat Project Atomic and OpenShift engineering teams merged into one matrixed organization to work jointly on a critical technical effort. Today the team is approximately 350+ people and growing, supporting several enterprise products (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host, OpenShift Container Platform, and OpenShift Online). When the founders of Agile envisioned the manifesto and principles, it can be said that they were not thinking in terms of the scale that large enterprises need to put in place in order to deliver products. In fact, this industry is struggling to define what scaled Agile even means. In this session, we will cover how scaling Agile is hurting our industry, learn about what the founders originally intended, and discuss many challenges: - Growing from small teams into large organizations - Handling communication and technical dependencies across many teams - Subject matter expertise that isn’t easily transferable - An effective organizational structure - And the eternal problem: people are people and sometimes just don’t get along.
