What is Agile Transformation?
Agile Transformation is the journey of shifting the predominant mindset and practices of an organisation. We live in unpredictable times with constant change and volatility in the global economy. Successfully transformed businesses can adapt to these circumstances and potentially thrive like never before.

It serves as a definitive system for identifying strengths and weaknesses within a business and adapting accordingly through Agile practices. Organisations can better serve the interests of customers, employees and stakeholders after completing a successful Agile transformation.

This makes it possible to streamline the production process and align the Agile teams with customer needs and values. In addition, step entails assessing the organisation’s DevOps approach, tools and practices.
