Do your DevOps or Agile teams include a finance manager, marketing director, executive strategist, compliance officer, security expert, risk management representative, etc? If your teams are continuously deploying, are your customers and customer support agents kept continuously informed? Are your development teams able to relate their work back to the strategy set forth by executive leadership? Does portfolio investment clearly align to the executive strategy? If you’ve answered "no" to any of these questions, then your Agile will never truly scale.

For medium and large sized organizations, establishing Agile teams is only part of the puzzle of maximizing value delivered. Optimizing the interactions between teams is the secret to recognizing the greatest gains in efficiency and productivity. By creating an organization wide coherence check of the efforts of “separate” value streams and functions, you can create a truly Agile organization with the ability to quickly deliver value to customers while anticipating and planning for the future needs of the market.

This session is intended for leaders, managers, and change agents serving organizations that are struggling with or just beginning to attempt Agility at scale. It offers actionable and proven advice for understanding and improving the relationships between teams, functions, and products/services.
