Our team helps Tieto teams distributed over the entire world to set up effective way of working applying Agile, Lean, Kanban and Global sourcing principles. In May 2009 we have faced our biggest challenge. Energy sector product, 30 people in Norway, Sweden and Finland with waterfall way of working organized into regular 6 sub-applications wanted to achieve quite challenging targets. To grow to 70 people by setting up another teams in Czech Republic, to transfer 15 years legacy system knowledge and to be up and running with this all in 6 months while maintaining the production for the clients at full speed. Paper describes how we fought and won over the challenges by basing the service transfer on Agile.
