MeVis made the change sustainable with the help of agile42
MeVis Medical Solutions decided to try out Scrum in 2009 and in early 2010 the company went ahead and selected agile42 as their partner. Together the two companies used the agile42 Coaching Structure to identify goals and metrics for the agile transition. agile42 trained all engineers and product owners, helped people understand agility, coached the teams in the use of Scrum, and introduced test automation.
