Agile Saturday XV is just around the corner. Time to introduce our speakers!
Our first keynote speaker at Agile Saturday XV on March 23rd will be… Vasco Duarte!
Actually, Vasco helped a lot our community and was the keynote speaker at the very first Agile Saturday whooping nine years ago. We are very happy to have Vasco together with us again.
Vasco will talk about that:
Agile Strategy – How to run an Agile business, a case study of 18 months of SAFe portfolio level implementation in the leadership team of a multinational company.
Here is an abstract to get you energised:
Your teams are Agile. You can even deliver software faster, but the business is still suffering? Do the teams claim that other departments are “behind” or “don’t get it”?
When companies start their Agile journey, they usually start from the IT corner, but that is not what Agile is about. The software is only a small part of the value customers get. We must also respond quickly to market changes, remove unnecessary costs, and focus on discovering higher value (higher profit, lower cost, market-centric, user-focused) products and services. The solution: be Agile about how you manage your company.
In this presentation, we walk through a 2-year transformation in a multinational mid-size company, which went from top-down waterfall-like portfolio planning to Agile Portfolio Management, the next wave of Agile.
