I wanted to let you know that I've posted a two-part series on Construx's experience with Agile Transformations, pitfalls, keys to success, and so on. 

The videos focus on two models that describe the transformation issues we have seen on the ground. You might have seen one or both of the models before, but they aren't often applied specifically to Agile adoption work. The focus of the videos is on showing how these general models specifically apply to Agile transformations. We have found that these models predict very well the challenges to expect in a transformation initiative and contain good insights into how to successfully overcome the challenges. 

Part 1: Agile Transformation - Change Model

Part 2: Agile Transformation - Adoption Model

Check out the talks!
