When considering how to apply Agile to business, many types of Agile have been developed, such as Agile for Sales, Agile Marketing, Agile Finance, etc. However, how do you scale agile practices within a function without creating a functional silo? What good is it to create an “Agile Marketing department” that can’t communicate with other Agile departments? This talk explores how to scale within functions with the goal of achieving cross-functional business agility.

We will discuss how strategy, product and operations can organize cross-functionally around value to deliver on the promise of business agility.
