Innovation in an Agile Portfolio: Enterprise Lean Startup
Zach Nies, Chief Technologist of Rally Software comes to the Silicon Valley to share his thoughts on the Agile Portfolio. Great companies build products that customers love. While this means they build valuable and useful features, it also means they don’t build things that aren’t valuable. Really great products and software are created by organizations that manage to put the customer at the center of their thinking and then work iteratively and incrementally to offer and test products to see what delights and what doesn’t.
The startup community has evolved disciplined practices that allow them to successfully navigate these highly uncertain environments. You aren’t a startup anymore, but these techniques can scale to your environment.
In this talk, you will learn the skills to become effective, disciplined explorers who know how to bring new features, products and services to market inside the context of a large company. This will allow you to successfully navigate uncertainty, while not sacrificing your ability to execute.
