Being agile without Agile Coaches at OVO Energy

Abstract

How do you scale agile working without becoming dependent on an army of agile coaches or scrum masters? OVO Energy has over 50 product engineering teams - and it’s growing fast. In this case study, Amanda will describe how she worked with OVO to develop a strategy that embedded agile working within their culture, allowing them to maintain just a small agile function as they scaled.
