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.

Collaboration at Scale: Budgeting and Agile Portfolio Management 
With Audrey McLaughlin, operation manager for Cisco's Corporate Social Responsibility organization, and Laura Richardson, VP of Sales at Conteneo, Inc. 

8 November 2017
11 a.m. ET (USA)

One way to define an "enterprise agility" is to focus on producing great outcomes at higher velocity by emphasizing rapid experimentation, maximizing flow of value for end users, and continuous improvement. But this requires something pretty fundamental: a means to allocate resources and manage portfolios. In this Collaboration at Scale webinar, we'll tackle budgeting and portfolio management. Although typically outside of the scope of a single Scrum team, budgeting and portfolio management are directly relevant to Teams who need to collaborate at scale.

A joint production of Scrum Alliance and Conteneo Inc., the Collaboration at Scale webinar series is designed to provide a series of focused, outcome-driven solutions to collaboration problems faced by CSPOs, ScrumMasters, and Scrum Team members in organizations of 10 or more Scrum Teams.
