Agile Adoption Readiness and Fit Workshop

When adopting new governance practices, leaders often find mismatches between assumptions and the realities within their organizations. This 2-day workshop leverages the SEI Readiness and Fit Analysis (RFA) technique to help people involved in systems of systems from all levels of the enterprise-senior leaders, policy makers, program managers, CIOs, technical managers, technical leads, system implementers, and users-make explicit the adoption risks related to an Agile governance or acquisition approach.

SEI facilitators will help you explore your current program environment to determine in what areas your team is more ready to adopt Agile methods, and identify adoption risks the team will face in areas where the team is not ready. The workshop is designed to help teams to uncover risks and create mitigation strategies when adopting new Agile governance practices.


  • Teams considering an agile adoption project
  • Teams currently engaged in agile adoption


  • Introduce the RFA technique

  • Map those assumptions against the current cultural and social realities of the organization


Six categories to profile for readiness and fit

  • Organizational climate
  • Project and customer environment
  • System attributes
  • Technology environment
  • Practices


Participants will receive workshop materials.
