Presentation Deck and Survey It’s common to see an organization (the people in them) focus on building products with as many features as possible and targeting delivery by a specific due date. Yet, often the result is missing the date while ignoring important goals demanded by the businesses such as high levels of product quality, development productivity, planning reliability, employee satisfaction, and customer loyalty. Retrospectives, if done after such an occurrence, surface the dissatisfaction concerning missed dates, poor quality, technical debt, and more, still frequently this pattern repeats.
Does the above scenario sound familiar to you? Maybe you have been thinking, “We need our business and technology people on the same page.” What might that look like in your organization? In this talk, Richard Hensley will address this question and how a good answer is the key to scaling lean practices using Kanban in a large organization.
