End to End Agile

We chose this year’s theme based on the momentum we are seeing around organization-wide Agile and Business Agility (see our Business Agility Sparks.

Agile teams are capable of great things, but agile organizations can be so much more. Have you ever wondered how much further you could go if your executives really understood and embraced their role in driving agility? What if you could get feedback on your products within hours of developing them? Have you seen your IT delivery cycle outstrip the speed of your business partners? You’re not alone; many companies are facing these challenges and others that come from failing to create a smooth, holistic feedback loop that bridges internal silos.

Lean+Agile DC 2019 will focus on shifting up to drive executive understanding and sponsorship, shifting left to increase business participation in the delivery cycle, and shifting right to strengthen the feedback loop through the introduction of technical capabilities like DevOps. Sessions will address how to integrate business functions like finance, marketing, HR and sales into a holistically agile culture. We will explore how concepts like flow, flexibility, focus and feedback can form the basis for effective scaled business governance while avoiding suboptimization and loss of autonomy. Take the next step in your lean and agile journey and get everyone involved!

We’d love to see you and your team at Lean+Agile DC on May 15 at the Center for Innovative Technology in Herndon, VA.
