How British Airways uses Agile

image Here is a good article describing how British Airways IT department have started applying Agile methods and have started seeing a lot of benefits. 

Couple of points I liked in this this article include :

1. If you are interested in implementing Agile in your organization, start with a pilot project with a small team
2. Try to employ a coach to help you to begin the journey. They might be expensive but worth having them on board
3. Put people who are interested in Agile as part of initial pilot team rather than pessimists
4. Scale the Agile projects slowly to rest of the IT organization as opposed to scaling it quickly.
