Title of presentation: Transforming the IoT Manufacturing Enterprise. Journey: from Guerilla Agile to Startups Portfolio.

Teltonika is a world-leading company with a complete manufacturing and service cycle in Agile transformation. The company was established in Lithuania more than 24 years ago and still is family-owned. At the moment, Agile in manufacturing business development is an emerging theme, so there aren't "gold standard" frameworks or practices, and there are no recipes for switching from Enterprise to Agile-driven company. Starting with the small scrumming teams is a good starting point for Agile to confirm effectiveness. Still, after some months of rapid Startup-like development, time for Agile scaling, daily Teams coordination, and product platform and portfolio management comes. What is an excellent scaling (or rescaling) approach - keep teams strictly independent or introduce some hybrid model? How do we manage hardware, firmware, and software development in parallel to ensure the timely delivery of the product in the global market? What is a good practice of Agile scaling preparation for full-cycle hardware startups and enterprises? Tomas will share the company's Agile experience in easy-to-adopt action protocols and management tools in the transformation journey from enterprise to startup and from startup to scaled Agile full-cycle company (not an enterprise).
