Bridging the Gap Between Business and Agile

Bridging the Gap Between Business and Agile

"I never know what features will be ready by the launch date." 

"Where is our Product Owner?"

"You said I could change the priorities;  why can't I change them right now?"

"Where are we headed with this application - is there a goal?"

What's your frustration when working with business stakeholders?  What's their frustration when working with their Agile teams?  Bring your list, your business stakeholder, and your creativity to the October 23 Beyond Agile meeting.  We'll share solutions and collaborate on new ones in this interactive workshop session.  Be sure to invite a key business stakeholder - a product owner, a product manager, or someone who works regularly with business stakeholders - so we can build the bridge from both sides.

    To our much appreciated hosts @ Marchex -- would it be possible to shut off the soda machines/refrigerators, at least during announcements, any presentations, etc.? They might be on their own circuit breaker which could make it easy vs. moving the machines to unplug them :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
