  • Next Level Agile Recorded: Sep 2 2015 58 mins
    Ryan Polk, VP of Products, Rally
    Agile was first adopted at the team level: groups of 7 plus or minus 2 people embracing agile practices. But in reality, this is not how most enterprise software is delivered. Enterprise software depends on multiple teams working toward common objectives. Most enterprise companies are just beginning to harness agile at this level.

    With this next level comes a new focus on agile adoption patterns and a back-to-basics approach. Companies adopting agile must come to grips with the reality that successful agile at scale requires hard organizational choices. Companies willing to go “all-in” are reaping immense rewards, including the ones who have been agile for many years.

    You’ll leave this webinar knowing:

    -How Agile at scale is different from team-level Agile
    -Why focusing on strong Agile basics is key to scaling Agile
    -Why connecting delivery to strategy is essential in realizing the promise of Agile
    -Where you are in your Agile journey, and what to do next
    -How to identify trouble spots and fix them
  • How Rally Does Big Room Planning Recorded: Jul 22 2015 4 mins
    Watch how we do big room planning, and learn how you can do it, too.

    First, assemble the entire delivery group (dev teams, UX, architecture, product managers, business leaders) together, in the same room.

    Then share a high-level vision and business context; next, collaborate to identify risks and dependencies, and prioritize and plan work among teams and iterations; finally, commit to a shared plan.

  • Collaborating Across Tools, Teams, and Time Zones Recorded: May 18 2015 66 mins
    Ryan Martens, Founder, Rally & Jen Provance, Release Train Engineer, DigitalGlobe
    Most enterprise social collaboration tools are designed to help you share information and get work done. But with information spread across multiple tools, teams, and time zones, you could spend more time managing your work than doing it.

    - How to unify team chat, email, status updates, deployment notifications, and social-media feeds
    - How DigitalGlobe uses a flow-based approach to collaborate, solve problems, minimize context switching, and maximize transparency
