In our continuing Leading Agile Transformation webinar series, we will explore delivering value through Planning at Scale. More organizations have been utilizing Big Room Planning; most commonly as Program Increment Planning (Scaled Agile Framework); to gain alignment across business stakeholders, dependent groups, and agile teams on business priorities, architectural priorities, risks, and impediments to the delivery of the top priorities. Why are so many organizations moving this direction and what are they trying to solve?

In this webinar moderated by MATRIX VP of Professional Services Joshua Jack, we will hear Transformation Leaders from Assurant, Black Knight, and CSX share insights from their journeys on topics like:

  • Stories from the Floor - successes, impediments, and failures

  • Common Pitfalls

  • Value Proposition for Business Participants

  • The need for active participation from the Business for success - bringing them into the Agile fold to help them understand how decisions impact the team
