Delivery at Scale
Thursday, September 19
Managing complex product delivery across many verticals introduces challenges that can result in costly project delays and failures. Design thinking at a large scale is often ignored, and yet it’s the one approach that can save your product and project from pain and suffering.
In this session, Robert will explore the differences between scaling delivery, the process of managing execution dependencies while anchored around the “why,” design, and product thinking, and scaling a framework—like scrum and others, and the impediments scaling frameworks present.
He will discuss the opportunities and processes that larger teams should consider in order to maintain a cohesive plan anchored on the “why” of a product, as well as techniques that allow you to evaluate how you currently deliver, while recognizing where you can quickly improve to increase your chances of success.
