essential and energizing
element of organizational
systems (teams and
companies)
Turning Dream(bit)s into
reality, through Order
and Action, maps well to
Agile&Lean development
In general, it works better
when the Dream is shared
and the organizational
levels are aligned

Bringing something from inception to completion (a software project, for example) is a non-linear journey that some seem better at traveling than others, especially when the precise destination isn't clearly defined.
It's a journey that takes at least three key elements: intent, order and action. Turns out that these can also be used as a powerful model to understand the processes, artifacts and roles in a team or company.
In this talk you'll see: how these elelemts are active in different ways in Agile and non-Agile companies; how they relate to some Agile artifacts, roles and practices such as backlogs, Product Owners and tests; and you'll get practical advice on how they can guide you in bringing more alignment at different levels in your team or company.
Of course, we'll also get practical advice on how the insights you'll get can guide you in bringing more alignment and cooperation at different organizational levels in your team or company.

Learning outcomes:
* read different underlying dynamics in Agile, non-Agile and Agile-wannabe organizations from a new point of view
* key aspects that make some product development teams and companies healthier and more functional 
* understand the organizational space in which Product Owners live and work (as opposed to tech teams)
* populating the backlog and be aligned with a creative business intent

Target audience:
* Experienced Agile Product Owners, team leaders and managers
