As we may know, Business Agility is a dynamic quality that organizations can cultivate through intentional and disciplined effort, much like athletic performance. But how can we measure it? While many organizations focus on measuring results and metrics like time-to-market and revenue growth, these indicators only tell part of the story. In this talk, we will explore other fields that use agility and get inspired by how they measure it. We will then discuss why measuring capabilities is even more critical than measuring results when it comes to understanding an organization's agility.

Invisible group dynamics undermine relationships and performance, being able to see and name the dynamics empowers teams to change the outcome.

Product roadmaps are an important product management tool. But traditional feature-based roadmaps are difficult to apply in an agile context where change and uncertainty are present. Does this mean that we should stop using product roadmaps?

My talk discusses how you can successfully use agile product roadmaps to describe the value the product should create, align the stakeholders, and unburden the product backlog while avoiding premature commitments and preserving the ability to inspect and adapt.

Every collaboration requires coordination, which feels like extra work no matter how important the collaboration is. Political, psychological, and operational barriers we often see when trying to bring change or just work together.

Jim Benson, author of the Collaboration Equation, will describe these common enemies of collaboration and three quick fixes so everyone can get up and running. This is taken from a section that didn't make it into the final draft of the book, so if you already have read The Collaboration Equation, this will be an excellent extension.
