We are happy to invite you to discover how the PMBOK has evolved over time towards Agile principles. Then we will give you some insights of the Agility transformation program managed in one of the key companies of Sophia Antipolis.
Agile Software Development is about mindsets and practices where solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. It requires significant transformation at company level for an efficient deployment to generate the expected benefits. It starts with the integration of the Agile principles within the project management processes, that will be detailed in the first part of this conference. In the second part, we will illustrate it with an example of Agile deployment in Amadeus, a key player in IT solution development in the region.
