AgileLIVE Webinar Series:
Agile Real Options: Reduce Risk and Increase IRR
Technological change is increasing at an exponential rate, enabling an unprecedented speed to market for competitive products and decreasing product lifecycles. Traditional product development methodologies simply can’t keep up with this level of change (risk) and limit our ability to adequately predict market return. 

This session discusses how applying agile methodologies can effectively address these issues at the project and portfolio levels. In addition, we walk through a case that tangibly demonstrates the benefits of agile using traditional corporate measures like reduced risk, reduced cash investment and increase internal rate of return.
