You have more than one project team who needs to collaborate with another team. Maybe you only have one technical team and a bunch of other people you need around the organization so you can release. And, you’ve heard of “frameworks” and “discipline” that don’t sound heavyweight, and maybe not so agile. Can you have a larger program and still be agile?
Yes. We already know how to use program management to deliver larger efforts. Agile and lean program management uses small-world networks of collaborative teams to solve problems and deliver features fast. That demands the entire program be agile and lean—to collaborate across the organization. Johanna Rothman shares how to see and use agile roadmaps and create small world networks to create a culture of delivery that works. Help your project teams to become more lean and more agile so that you have working product releases all the time.
