Test and Learn approach to Agile Adoption at Scale

Like all large organisations, NAB has embarked on a transformation to evolve the ways of working. We all have a fairly good idea of what good looks like, but there are many roads to take in getting there.

Maybe we can all learn something from design thinking and lean agile, to tell us the best way to transform to an agile organisation?

NAB has taken a grass routes, organic, bottom-up approach to Agile transformation. There has not been any grand heralding of our intent, rather a quiet revolution borne out of a desire to change. Sure there has been roadmaps and strategies, but they are constantly evolving and the path has had many twists and turns. Did anyone say ‘pivot’?

In this session we will explore the NAB agile journey, what obstacles were faced, how they were overcome, and where to next. We look at scaling agile methodologies, capability development, enabling project managers to be change agents, and how technology, business and delivery can work together to deliver a quiet revolution.
