    Become a Purpose-Driven Organization
    Shannon Mason, VP of Product Management and Val Zolyak, Director of Product Management Recorded: Dec 5 2018 61 mins
    In today’s fast-paced, disruption-prone markets, it’s not enough to simply optimize for feature delivery. Your entire organization must be aligned around the right outcomes and empowered to achieve them, because velocity and throughput count for nothing if you’re not delivering real customer value.

    In order to do this, your data has to be transparent and actionable, enabling stakeholders at all levels to see how their efforts are impacting the business. Team members need the autonomy to make informed decisions about how their work gets done, while those at the program level need to see dynamic data roll-ups and help remove barriers that create the dreaded “work about work.”

    Leadership needs clarity to ensure that the organization’s strategy is delivering on key objectives and producing high-value outcomes.

    During this webinar, Shannon Mason, VP of Product Management and Val Zolyak, Director of Product Management, will discuss how purpose-driven organizations can:
    •Align teams and empower them to innovate
    •Plan quickly, continuously and confidently
    •Create an outcome-oriented culture

    It is this shared understanding of work that helps to create an outcome-oriented culture, where everyone is accountable for delivering value instead of just velocity.
