Keynote Synopsis
It is quite well known that the beginning of this century sparked the Agile movement. At the beginning of this decade, some companies experimented with building on their success with implementing Agile to delivering entire product and service lines involving multiple areas of their organization. That is, their delivery scaled while benefiting from increased alignment, engagement, productivity and responsiveness to their market and industry conditions.
According to recent surveys, there are still opportunities in a growing number of companies wanting to change and improve on implementation of their Agile and DevOps processes and practices. In addition, the c-level executives expect their team members to increase their understanding and team up to lead such efforts across their organizations.

This session will highlight the need in such scaling transformations for analytical, technical and leadership skills that are acquired and witnessed in many of the professionals engaged in project management and execution such as project/technical leads, system/technical architects, business/system analysts, project/program/portfolio managers as well as line/functional/resource managers, and other team members.
