A software project implying 80 people, divided in 9 teams across 4 countries. A product that must sustain an activity of more than 5'000'000 sale transactions per day. A first deployment to production expected 6 months after project startup. And new features every 2 months. Who said that Agile was not adapted to large projects ? We will share with you our experience on a project involving a rollout of agile methodologies at large scale : feature-teams, communities of practice, switching to continuous stream of work without iterations, using lead-time metrics, frequent delivery and deployment to production in a single click, collaborative decision-making… What you will learn : - Our “do’s and don’t's” about agile methodologies when applied to large projects - The organization models we put in place - Our best practices to keep the stream under control in a large project - Key tools and skills to start such a project


Knowledge of SCRUM, and common practices (TDD, agile rituals, retrospectives…)

Benefits for the attendees

An overview of good and bad practices, as we experienced them in the project.
