Aligning Toward Business Agility–360° of Freedom

Add to calendar

What happens when the product vision is unclear? Simply put, your teams struggle to build valuable features and your customers are not happy. This lack of alignment eats away not only at the value you’re trying to deliver but also at your customers’ good will—and it can demoralize your teams.

Ryan Ripley examines the why behind your current practices and shows you how the agile values, principles, and ceremonies of an agile organization are designed to create and maintain alignment all the way from customers to individual team members. Drawing from real-world examples, Ryan explains how to identify when your alignment is off and how to check for negative impacts. He shares tactics and strategies for getting back on track to ensure that your organization fosters alignment up and down the organization chart with 360o of freedom
