In-depth Reports from PMI:  Agile Transformation

Following PMI's Pulse of the Profession research, Forrester Consulting further queried 1,469 practitioners.  They gained insights and examples of how companies are transitioning to a more agile work environment and project approach.  Those surveyed included a mix of people in traditional/waterfall and agile roles. 

Forrester's follow-up work has been published in two reports.  The first report shares how leaders are adapting to change and what support their organizations have provided.  The companion report goes into detail about specific people and process drivers.  Download the reports to learn more and see examples from companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Caterpillar, IBM, and Cerner Corporation.
