For seven years, I was the executive in charge of production for Disney Parks Digital. Like many other IT executives, I was confused and frustrated that our teams were not delivering.
I also wasn’t eager to rip our process out by the roots and perform an ‘Agile Transformation’ across over 300 people and 250 projects.
But we did, and it worked. The Agile process worked because we started with the teams first. We helped organize lightweight innovation and delivery processes that suited the company’s goals and the teams’ skills.
