Presented in Agile Singapore 2013 Conference
This is the story of how a small group of dedicated Agile/Lean advocates are transforming Intel Malaysia, the company’s largest and most diverse off-shore site with almost 10,000 employees. This informal team has influenced organizations to embrace Agile at the grass-roots level with little to no formal budget and authority. We will share our observations, thoughts and lessons learnt over the past 4 years, touching ~60 teams across multiple organizations. Not only that, we have been fortunate enough to also influence other sites within Intel in our region. We have been responsible for training people in Singapore; China and India. We will start with why – what our vision is, and what keeps us motivated to continue with this transformative work. Next, we will share how we influence organizations within a big company like Intel. Then we will share what we do, some stories about our failures and successes, and what we have learnt. Finally, we will offer some key lessons from our experiences about what it takes to become a successful Agile company.
