We often look to our engineering teams first to drive efficiency and speed to deliver but as we optimize the flow of our development processes we quickly create pressure in the organizational workflow with the activities that feed into and out of product delivery. Product definition struggles to keep pace and establish a queue of viable options to pull from. Marketing efforts begin to pile up as features release faster than we can share the news. All of this stems from optimizing only one part of the overall system. In this webinar, we will look at how to scale Kanban practices to the entire organization to provide the visibility, flexibility, and predictability to make every part of the business truly agile.
