Agile Deliveries in a Waterfall World

For our PMI NL Chapter meeting in Amsterdam in December we have chosen the topic 'Agile transformation': it will be about the MISMATCH between the way of doing business between an Agile development organization as supplier and a waterfall/ traditional organization as customer.

These challenges will be addressed by Raoul Zaal,  COO and Member of Executive Board at FocusCura.

FocusCura is an Agile shop working with Health Care Organizations. Most of these are anything but Agile. So how does FocusCura deal with that? Does that work? What are the pitfalls? What are work-arounds exist and how does long term planning work? How is Agile reflected into contract management? Are deliveries done with Agile mindset or with a more traditional approach?

Our second speaker Aart-Jan (AJ) Eenkhoorn, agile coach at Wemanity with a wealth of experience in coaching and training agile teams as well as executing agile projects in large enterprises, will address the challenge in and between companies in regard to roles and responsibilities, which is very important for managing expectation and actually delivery! This is hidden in an Agile leadership paradigm shift! AJ will contemplate on Agile governance and setting boundaries to work towards project success.
