Common Sense Advisory contends that current localization production models break down as teams scramble to stretch them to fit Agile. What lessons can veteran localizers learn from colleagues who have Agile-ized their teams? What are the most important areas to benchmark? What should less experienced localization managers know before they begin the move to Agile?

  • What to expect and how to prepare for Agile-ization
  • Why you don’t have to be 100% Agile to deliver Agile localization
  • How you can exploit the methodology to gain a permanent seat on the development team
  • Why an organization’s corporate culture and level of localization maturity influence success for Agile implementation 
  • The three approaches that localization teams use to sync up with Agile developers
  • The eight areas that require attention for localization automation
  • The steps required to optimize localization testing for Agile
