Strengthening a Foundation for Enterprise Business Agility with TBM, LPM and VSM

Tremendous advances have been made in the worlds of agile development, DevOps, lean thinking, and the like. Across many large companies, pockets of agile excellence, enterprise DevOps initiatives, projects to product pioneers, cloud adoption and digital transformation initiatives are pushing the boundaries of our organizations. However, their tendency to start and grow as grassroots initiatives is testament to the misalignment with the organizational design of the enterprise around them. The misalignments are significant - across org structures, culture, and much more. We will explore this very expansive problem by focusing on just one critical aspect: the systems around project planning and delivery.
