A Visual Management System for Enterprise Agile Programs and Projects
Many companies struggle when scaling agile methods to large, multi-team projects and programs. Enterprise-level agile adoption is especially challenging in environments that are not fully agile and where delivery cadences often vary wildly. A visual management system is a valuable tool to help teams and management overcome these challenges.
This webinar will describe a simple and effective agile-ready coordination system based on proven implementations at widely differing companies. This system combines elements of the Scrum of Scrums, visual management theory and Lean value stream visualization to:
- Track the progress across dependent agile and waterfall teams
- Visualize and manage dependencies between teams
- Increase collaboration and trust on large programs and portfolios
- Coordinate between local and remote teams with minimal overhead
