ASP Chicago Presents: Agile Strategic Planning for the Agile Organization
Enterprise Strategy Drives Portfolio Strategy - this is not new. However, with the rapid growth of Agile at Scale in the marketplace, new perspectives and approaches need to be considered when formulating your Enterprise Strategy.
Join us and learn how to translate Enterprise Strategies into ‘Strategic Themes’ that directly connect, influence and drive the solution portfolios to be executed. We will discuss the concepts of Value Streams, Portfolio Canvas creation, SAFe® Portfolios, Portfolio Backlogs & Kanban, Fast Feedback, and how you can use them to succeed.
We will start with an introduction to the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) to lay the foundation, then quickly shift focus to Strategy Formulation and Themes.
