Conference: Scaling Agile Transformation

Santander has been running an Agile transformation for few years. Taking into account the number of Entities, local circumstances, different local business challenges, and different starting points we have a variety of local adoptions and their maturity. The variety gives us a power of different experiences which we exchange between Entities to improve. The difficulty is not in a design but in a worldwide execution keeping balance between leveraging on local skills and keeping group consistency. Respecting the localities we have a reference model and common software Engineering cloud-based strategy which are backbones for the local transformations and helps converging where it makes sense.
