We have embarked on our journey to Agile transformation after getting buy-in from executives. However, it hasn’t been as smooth as we hoped it would be. In this article, I describe the major challenges we have encountered on our Agile journey and how we overcame them. One of the things that I want to highlight is that the challenges may be similar across organizations.

In recent years, many companies have begun creating Agile Centers of Excellence (COEs) within their organization, as a way to help transform their teams from whatever they were previously doing into following better Agile Practices. At first glance, these COEs look similar to a traditional Project Management Office (PMO), but they most certainly are not. While a PMO is most often focused on governance, control and measurements, an Agile COE is much less about control, and much more about creating support and alignment within the teams, so that they can successfully govern themselves.
