Presentation Details 

Agile Strategic Planning changes strategic planning from an event into a process, enabling teams the ability to more effectively plan and execute a plan that is embraced by their organization. This session discusses the various components (mission, vision, objectives, and SWOT) and schedule. Learn to apply Agile values to make the plan useful, as follows:

  • Individual and team interactions over processes and tools.
  • Strategic planning over comprehensive documentation.
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation.
  • Responding to change over following a plan
