Enterprise Discovery: From Clouseau to Columbo, Understanding Large Organizations (Thomas Perry, Marcelo Camozzato)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Understanding the enterprise is essential to the success of any enterprise transformation initiative. All too often, consultants are rushed in to implement agile methods without any meaningful understanding of the existing people, processes or culture. Engaging without understanding these important contextual elements is a recipe for failure. There is an alternative that can help lead to more successful outcomes: Organizational Discovery.
Organizational Discovery is a structured process for uncovering the critical elements of the people, process and culture. It goes far beyond the current rather superficial models of "agile assessment" to dig into uncovering meaningful functions and dysfunctions within the enterprise. In this talk we describe the discovery process with different investigation approaches and the pros and cons of each.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand the enterprise discovery process
  • Learn different investigation approaches and how and when to use them
  • Discover the kinds of artifacts needed to uncover to maximize engagement success
