On April 29, 2014, I gave a a presentation entitled Evolving Alignment across Multiple Agile Teams, at the Agile / Lean Practitioners Meetup.
Agile principles emphasize empowered, self-organizing teams but provide little guidance in how create alignment across multiple agile teams. In this presentation, Ilio Krumins-Beens will share experiences gained trying to improve strategic and operational alignment with more than 10 agile teams. Discussion will include experiments with different ways of sharing teams’ roadmaps, identifying dependencies, risks, synergies and achieving operational alignment.

He has spent more than half of his career working with companies / teams to roll out Agile / Lean practices. Currently, Ilio is the Executive Director of Agile Practices, at Kaplan Test Prep.
