Is your business strategy and development aligned?

It’s a simple question that stumps even the highest performing organizations. When development teams adopt Agile, the business still needs answers to simple questions about delivery dates, return on investment and cost. When the business doesn’t clearly rank program and investment priorities, development doesn’t have the opportunity to optimize their work beyond the sprint and release level.

Wanda will explain and show how to use Agile and Lean principles to address the realities of the PMO, maintain a healthy portfolio of projects, increase investment visibility and create alignment between development and business strategy.
