Five dimensions for a successful scaled agile transformation

Within the past few years, agile development approaches have become increasingly popular. Originating in software development, agile methodologies are being introduced step by step into cyber-physical products. When used in traditional industries, the typical objectives of agile development are to increase customer value and flexibility, reduce time to market, provide a faster decision-making process and to reduce project complexity.

Agile methods and processes can easily be introduced in single projects with small team sizes. But, as we at 3DSE have discovered during various projects, organizations start to struggle when it comes to integrating an increasing number of agile working teams towards one common goal, for example, in a project, in a program or in any other organizational unit.

The reason is that many organizations understand “agile” as applying only to agile methods.
