"Making Smart Decisions - Implementing business change with agile teams aligned to measurable goals" is a presentation that explores areas outside traditional agile methods thinking. We'll see how agile teams are influencing the industry but explain that just because you're agile doesn't mean you're making smart decisions. Smart decision making closes the gap between typical Scrum/XP implementations and achieving measurable progress on strategic business goals. I'll present the components of smart decision making and how you can put them into practice by discussing a recent case study using this method (including our lessons learned and results achieved).
