The A3 Agile Business: An Agile Alignment Approach

1,028 views

Published on

As scale and distribution set in at organisations that have strong growth, spreading the lean and agile culture becomes even more important to keep teams aligned and motivated. At Rally, we have fallen in love with A3 Thinking and templates to address this challenge. We do new hire bootcamps, employee trainings and walk the talk, but A3’s seem to be the most effective tool for helping us spread lean thinking and empower teams to share their problems and strategies. This talk will tell our story, challenge the audience and provide some education on these powerful tools for enabling teams to collaborate, steer and take action.
