Abstract:
Are you ready for your Enterprise Agility journey? Let’s take a look! Becoming Agile and getting to Enterprise Agility is a journey of incremental progress where, as with other journeys, you’ll explore, discover, experiment, and learn - at your own pace and in a way that's right for your Enterprise. 
In this presentation, we’ll travel together through journeys taken by Target Marketing business teams that are becoming Agile. We’ll join them as they progress from Team and Product Agility into Strategic Agility and enter into Enterprise Agility as we envision it. We’ll see teams operating in various frameworks including Scrum, Kanban, Scrumban (hybrid), and experimental groups forming practice squads and guilds to deliver what’s new and next for Target Guests.
Anchoring to the Agile Values and Principles, these teams are developing empathetic, trusting, and collaborative relationships within their teams and across organizational pyramids. We'll see how delivering valuable outcomes early, often, and beyond expectations helps drive engagement with Executive Leadership. And we'll share some of the signals that indicate that your Enterprise is advancing toward Business Agility such as our Coach-in-Training experiment that enables teams to continue along their learning journey once they've skilled up in our internal immersive learning environment.
Being a leader in an industry means having trend-setting strategies, leadership and products that adapt to change, and making guest-centric decisions. Today’s industry leaders must be agile – ultimately across their Enterprise. Tom Diedrich and Chris Diller, Lead Agile Coaches at Target, will share stories of Marketing teams’ journeys and outline an ongoing approach in pursuit of Enterprise Business Agility at a large corporation.

Learning Outcomes:
  • The investments to consider making for Enterprise Agility now and in the future
  • How leveraging immersive learning increases speed of transformation and more sustainable positive outcomes
  • Parallels and distinctions of IT and business teams in an Agile environment
  • The importance of alignment on Product
  • What it means to commit to organizational change
