Today the importance and relevance of the Agile methodologies are growing significantly outside the original field of software development. One of the many industries that are turning to agile principles is financial industry. Operating in hyper-competitive environment with new non-traditional, disruptive competitors that are entering industry, large financial institutions are under intense pressure to innovate faster and better to stay competitive, achieving greater operational efficiency, high quality products, reduced time-to-market and improved ROI. However, the fact that agile methods were originally designed for small size software development teams represent challenge to large organisations that want to scale agile organisation-wide. The aim of this thesis is to gain better understanding of challenges and success factors of agile transformation in large financial institutions though systematic literature review. Particular emphasis of this thesis will be on socio-complexity of agile transformation and organisational change management in large and mature financial companies.
