Coming Up Next

See You Thursday March 19th Event @ 6:30 p.m. Culture Clash! Can Agile Cadence and Business Cadence Work Together? 

By now, many software Product Managers have encountered Agile development teams and adjusted their daily and weekly schedules to accommodate working with the team or with a Product Owner. But what about annual planning and budgeting? Road mapping? Business cases? These are areas that touch the business as well as the development teams. Has your organization made the transition to more agile methods for these critical product management processes? If not, you're not gaining the full benefits of Agile software development methods.

Join Linda Merrick of Pivotal Product Management to explore techniques for making product management and businesses more agile. We'll explore:

  • Balancing annual planning with shifting priorities and the big backlog of demand
  • Making commitments to internal and external stakeholders
  • Using Minimum Viable Business Cases to guide annual and quarterly investment decisions

Who should attend

Product managers and product marketers, those that want to become one, or those that want to understand better the value they can provide.
