Capability Uplifts: The Guiding Light Tracking Agile Releases in a Digital Transformation

Presented by: Terry Roach


In the race to embrace the digital economy a wave of transformation is sweeping across enterprise IT. Digital Transformation is on everybody's agenda, but at the exponential rate that change is occurring, transformation is not a one-off thing. We have entered the era of continuous digital transformation.

The principle challenge facing any digital transformation initiative is to clearly articulate the current and future state business model and the roadmap for getting there. In particular, how to identify, track and measure Business Capability uplifts across a portfolio of delivery projects.

This session will address the following issues:

  • Leveraging Business Capability maps to plan a transformation initiative
  • Measuring the progress of transformation through Capability Assessments
  • Tracking the transformation scope across an Agile portfolio
  • Managing the roadmap to the Target-Operating-Model
  • Analyzing the impact of change

Drawing on experience from a variety of real-world cases, this presentation will propose an integrated meta-model for agile business transformation, provide tangible, reusable project artefacts and offer a pragmatic template to guide business architects and agile practitioners on a digital transformation journey. 

Attendees Will Learn About:

  • Pragmatic Digital Transformation
  • Alignment of Business Architecture and Agile Delivery
  • Tracing the path from As-Is to To-Be through an Agile Release Train
