Experience how the LIA vision translates to action in this interactive session.

Getting REAL Benefits of Agility with Tricia Ratliff

Excella Consulting

Please note: Due to an unforseen emergency, Tricia Ratliff will give her talk at a later date TBD. (Hopefully, in the fall) How does Agile lead to business value? Learn from Tricia Ratliff, Chief Innovation Officer at Scaled Markets, about the startup executive or product owner point of view as she addresses the question: What do Executives and Agile leaders need to know and do to get the real benefits of agility? We often focus on the "how" and sometimes the "why" of agility, but the practical reality is that the real value of agile is when we get a return on investment by running fast experiments, measuring feedback/response from the market, and selling solutions. There are a set of factors that all need to be in place for this to happen. Leaders are in a position to make them happen, but those same leaders are usually busy ... and money is sometimes wasted on agile initiatives that don't pay off. Come here Tricia's simple, practical message on what it takes to get real agile ROI. Agenda 6:00 - 6:30 Arrive, mingle, dinner 6:30 - 8:00 Presentation/Discussion 8:00 - 8:15 Q&A, One-on-One Relational exercise
