Re: [ljc] agile and strategic

Hey guys,

Sorry to gatecrash this thread with a plug, but for those in a leadership position, interested in attending an event on agile, we are organising an event titled "Practically agile" which is targeted at CTOs, aspiring CTOs and technical leaders in London rather than juniors/developers. It will help you understand the different aspects of agile and how those techniques can help you create an effective business. It is being run as part of another Meetup group that I'm involved in called London CTOs and is being hosted by Xebia (Sponsors of the LJC) and presented by the LJCs John Stevenson. 

If you are a CTO, Tech Leader or aspiring CTO then feel free to sign up to the Meetup group itself:, if you do not fit this category but would still like to come along then send me an email directly at [address removed]. Space is limited, depending on what room we get, but I will see what I can do and confirm asap.

Alternatively, and if possible, feel free to send on to your CTO/tech leaders in your business who may well be interested.

If there is enough demand we can easily organise an agile event targeted specifically at the LJC. Again let me know and we'll organise it for you. ([address removed])

Warm regards,

I believe the normal approach is to "have a product owner".  The strategic goals *have* to be known somewhere, how are priorities being set otherwise?

Would like to pick up on Richard's comment: 'Agile lacks long-term planning', on a new thread.

 I'm interested in which ways can Agile practitioners keep long-term or strategic goals in focus, while retaining the agility of being able to change direction. What works, what doesn't?
