Understand how applying Agile at Scale improves results.
"Your company must, using software and technology, become as responsive and agile as your customers. And then remain as aggressive as they are by measuring, monitoring, evaluating and responding to data about your products and services and their impact on society."*
But what does it look like to try amplify the results of Agile at scale? In this session, we will explore how the same Agile principles lead to specific scaling techniques. When Agile is applied at the program, portfolio, and even enterprise level, the impact is amplified; everyone in the organization becomes value-driven, values feedback over planning, and seeks to improve the flow of work.
Learn how to:
- Prioritize work according to its value
- Collaborate with stakeholders to refine ideas that drive innovation
- Track projects and alter funding strategies
- Shorten the time needed to respond to market feedback
Yes, small teams deliver quality and value iteratively and incrementally and leverage fast feedback loops to produce better results. Now, we need to start thinking about Agile at scale. There are many good practices but few perfect prescriptions. Attend this session to learn how real-world examples apply Agile thinking and Agile principles to discover the right practices and produce measurable results.
