AgilePart 1 of the Agile OCM Video Insights Series describes the need for change management approaches that are adapted to support the iterative and evolving end state of an agile environment. The Agile OCM Framework is introduced along with the benefits of pairing the framework with agile development. Introducing change management throughout the agile development lifecycle allows change management to adapt along with your organization's change to agile. By aligning OCM and agile practices, this begins the organizational cultural shift to an agile format that is more responsive to customer needs and delivering more quickly than with waterfall, while building understanding, buy-in, and commitment from the organization.
