Despite evidence predictive project management is not appropriate for the majority of projects, it remains the dominant form. Unfortunately there is no proven method for large-scale transformations to Agile. Only one scientific source has been published. An exploratory narrative literature review in the related field of organizational change (OC) was conducted. Evidence-based OC models exist for overcoming barriers such as isomorphism, inertia, and resistance to change, but follow waterfall forms. An Agile alternative adapted from those models is proposed using eleven prioritized “epics.” It may serve as an educated guess for Agile coaches and a basis for Agile transformation research.
