Agile adoption in the investment banking industry
Societe Generale launched in 2014 a strategic programme to implement agile across its IT organisation. Initially putting a strong emphasis on software craftsmanship & scrum practices, the investment banking IT department is now moving towards agile adoption at the organisational level. Together, we will be looking into a grassroots journey started by Hong Kong IT teams working for the Fixed Income & Currencies business line in 2016, largely inspired by LeSS principles. We will discuss a broad range of subjects such as the challenges of Product Ownership (Product definition & steering), scrum adoption within the team and the changes in managerial roles.
