Discussing large organizations in an Agile HR world

Peter Hundermark presenting a case study about a major agile transition at HR Goes Agile conference in South Africa

I will be presenting a talk on "Growing an internal agile coaching capability in a large organisation" at the HR Goes Agile Conference taking place in Johannesburg, South Africa on the 12-13 June 2018.


HR Goes Agile speaker badge

HR Goes Agile is the first conference in South Africa that specifically focusses on the role of HR in guiding and facilitating organizations in becoming agile. In doing so it will inspire, motivate and empower employees and unlock the true potential of their companies. We are very happy to be a sponsor of this event. Read more online.


We are currently engaged at one of the major banks where we are helping 1400 people to transition to agile methods. Our main strategy is to build an internal agile coaching capability that will enable the bank to become self-sustaining in their journey to agility, which we know, will take many years to reach maturity.


The case study that I'll discuss in my talk will cover very briefly the genesis of the Scrum Master Academy, the journey to create the programme, and how they are going about the current programme and what they are learning right now about what works well and what remains a struggle.
