In late 2016, Walmart’s learning and development team recognized the need to increase the pace at which they deliver high-quality, highly engaging learning content to their 1.5 million U. S. associates, given the rapid changes and increased competition occurring in the retail sector. Agile was selected as a means to expand output, maximize development capacity, and create quality learning experiences.
