Agile development starts with small teams tackling small problems. After some initial successes the organisation gets more ambitious, and tries to get more teams tackling bigger problems. At some point these endeavours run headlong into finance and governance structures from a different era, designed with huge projects in mind, and it usually doesn’t end well. In this talk Dan North explains where our existing governance and funding models came from, why they aren’t a good fit for agile delivery methods, and what we can do about it.
