Mission impossible? Applying agile to enterprise projects

During this highly interactive session Sander Hoogendoorn, principal technology officer and agile thought leader at Capgemini, will show how the worlds of agile, SOA and ERP meet in a complex service oriented projects. 

After illustrating the complexity of both organizations and projects, its environment and the underlying service oriented ERP technology, Sander demonstrates how agile processes (Scrum and Smart) and techniques (think of smart use cases, dashboards, and workshops) were introduced to manage the projects. 

Questions answered by the enthusiastic speaker include the following. Can agile processes and techniques be applied to ERP SOA projects? Does Scrum offer sufficient techniques to meet with the complex requirements and architecture of a service oriented project? What is a good unit of work in agile ERP projects? What are smart use cases? Can ERP SOA projects, that typically know all kinds of specialist roles, work with agile teams? Is it possible to manage highly complex project environments using agile techniques? How do you motivate a project team in a high-paced agile project that is so used to doing waterfall style projects? Experienced speakers Sander and Twan will illustrate this interactive session with lots of diagrams, pictures and real-life anecdotes from the trenches of probably the first agile ERP SOA projects executed successfully in the Netherlands.
