DAVID HUSSMAN - You’re Probably More Wrong than You Know (or Measure)
January 15, 2018 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Venue Address: 
Crown Plaza Airport
3 Appletree Square
Bloomington , MN 55425
Program Description: 

Agile and lean practices are now well known. Where companies, teams, and programs are working hard to learn faster, they are often faced with the ambiguity of the real and measurable value of what they are “getting done”. This talk will pick up where the basics of agile methods left off. Starting with the premise that agile practices are now table stakes, we will explore the many undiscussed challenges that still remain: making sound investments in projects and programs, measuring real impact and incrementally adjusting toward the most real value, knowing how much agility is valuable a particular effort, incrementally investing in continuous discovery, some of which lies outside of delivery. If you have questions or challenges that you believe live outside the scope of what agile or lean practices provide, please show up with your questions and comments. We will field all of them!
