According to industry surveys over the past decade, the top impediment to further agility in organizations is lack of leadership awareness, understanding, and behavioral alignment with Agile values. 

Scrum Alliance has been collecting research and organizational in identifying the leadership mindset, behaviors, and focus that drive the sustained value delivery and organizational agility required to succeed in complex and rapidly changing environments. 

This talk shares the discoveries from that research, highlights the learnings leaders should seek to understand and apply, and introduces a new program from Scrum Alliance to guide leaders through this journey.

User story mapping is a powerful tool for understanding work flows and complex aspects of system behavior. By arranging stories by user goals and identifying ways to increasingly improve how a user can realize their goals, user story maps help identify holes and omissions in your backlog, improve release planning, and ensure that higher-order goals are realized.  

In this Collaboration at Scale webinar, we'll explore the opportunities and challenges that large distributed teams face when creating and using user story maps.
