Business and IT Alignment: Turning Agile into a Reality
It doesn't matter if you've been using Agile for 1 year or for 10 years; getting business and IT alignment is a constant struggle. It doesn't matter what your industry is or where your teams reside. As project leaders, we are battling generations' of stereotypes surrounding IT as unable to deliver and lacking business or market knowledge. You cannot truly be Agile unless this gap is bridged! It takes more than just team activities and performance reviews to get results in today's changing world of solutions delivery.

Sessions created to take you to the next level in your organization include:
