CO-OPERATORS LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY INCREASES VALUE AND AGILITY WITH DISCIPLINED AGILE
CO-OPERATORS SUCCESSFUL ADOPTION OF DISCIPLINED AGILE
Prior to adopting Disciplined Agile, the organization ran isolated agile pilots based on Scrum and Kanban, but were still predominantly “project based” using a waterfall methodology, and structured in “role siloes” (BA’s, Developers, Project managers).
In 2016, the Co-operators Life IT leadership team recognized a need to rethink its initiative delivery model to provide greater value and agility to its business partners. Scott Ambler + Associates were brought in to do an assessment of the current state and to provide recommendations for improvement.
