Navigating the People Side of Change on an Agile Project

Agile development works in very fast, iterative sprints, releasing a product as quickly as possible. It is an excellent way to develop a system; but presents challenges when managing the people side of such fast-paced change. Organizations need time to analyze people impacts, and plan for a smooth transition to a known end state. Yet Agile development is quick, with the end state constantly changing. So, how do you prepare for the people impacts with an unknown future state, working with iterative bits of critical information, and only weeks or days between the finished end product and a release date?

In this presentation, learn the successful strategy that produced less than 10% user errors on Day One; floor supervisors owning the problem solving by Day Two; and business-as-usual ownership of the system and processes by the end of Week One.
