Presentation: Joint transition to Agile development of the customer and outsourcing partner

The presentation will tell a successful, though still not completed story of a mid-size Silicon Valley company transition from radically traditional SDLC – Waterfall to Agile.

  • What prompted Hotwire to undergo a painful, company-wide transition to Agile while Waterfall SDLC was working perfectly fine?
  • What helped the transition to go from a theoretical idea to a factual implementation?
  • What role did the offshore partner play in this transition?
  • In Hotwire’s case, how does successful Waterfall process from the past compares to the successful Agile model of today?
  • Changes in the Org Structure due to Agile transition
  • How other teams (Customer Care, HR, etc.) adopt to agility in the company

Roman and Denis will cover these and other topics in their presentation.
