Limited Capacity seats available

Strategy is about change and your Agile strategy is no exception. Your Agile strategy needs to describe what changes will be made, what will bring about the changes, and what the resulting value will be for the organization.
A Strategy Map – a diagram used to capture and communicate an organization’s strategy invented by Robert Kaplan and David Norton – illustrates the cause-and-effect relationships of actions and outcomes that will drive change and achieve the strategic goals of an organization. Whether you are about to embark on an Agile transformation journey or you’re currently using Agile methodologies and looking for ways to drive improvement, the process of strategy mapping is an absolute prerequisite.
Strategy mapping helps create much needed clarity around the critical and interconnected concepts of goals, objectives, and activities. Each plays an important and specific role in a well executed strategy including an Agile strategy. Thus, aligning and communicating goals, objectives, and actions you will take to arrive at the future state is critical for engagement and execution of the strategy.
Participants will walk away from this session with the ability to use strategy mapping as a tool in leading transformation and continuous improvement initiatives in their organizations. Participants will be given an overview of the strategy mapping process and will co-create a strategy map with other participants through a facilitated workshop. Participants will also see how the strategy map can be used beyond strategy development and support continuous improvement and action planning at an organizational level.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will understand the structure and design of a Kaplan- & Norton-style strategy map
  • Participants will co-create an Agile strategy map through a collaborative workshop
  • Participants will learn how a strategy map can be used as a continuous improvement tool at an organizational level
  • Participants will walk away with a tool and process to facilitate engagement and understanding of an Agile strategy
