Agile Capitalization: Invest in the Future (Dan Greening, John Horton)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In many companies, agile software development is misunderstood and misreported, increasing taxes, volatility in profit and loss (P&L) and costly manual time-tracking. Agile and Scrum teams inherently create production cost data that are more verifiable, better documented, and more closely aligned with known customer value than most waterfall implementations. Better reporting can mean significant tax savings and greater investor interest.
Explore the theory, benefits, regulations, and real-world examples of capitalizing software developed using agile practices. You will learn from members of the team that pioneered defensible agile capitalization practices in a $10B publicly traded company.
Leave with the understanding and resources to lead an agile capitalization effort at your company. Save weeks of research and investigation by attending this powerful briefing.
Learning Outcomes:

  • Improve the company’s P&L

  • Reduce or eliminate need to track actual hours

  • Free up working capital for innovation and growth in software development

  • Reduce future tax burden

  • Improve verifiability for internal and external auditors

  • Increase clarity for shareholders on investments and operational expenses
