While it is important to build bridges with business stakeholders, mature Agile teams must leverage automation to best succeed. 

Over the course of the last couple of years, Fannie Mae has worked aggressively to transform itself from a siloed command and control culture to an Agile organization. Today, Fannie Mae is a more dynamic value-oriented organization that is responsive to stakeholders and focused on achieving greater efficiency, by enabling fast-feedback loops and by using empirical data to optimize mature and persistent Agile values and practices.

Within the larger context of the transformation to enterprise agility, this presentation will focus on the case for change, Fannie Mae’s journey, corresponding challenges, and key learnings realized.
