Configuring Agile Tools to Work for You w/ Jessica Wolfe
If you are working at an organization that is applying Agile practices across the enterprise, chances are, somewhere early on in the transformation a tool was selected to help the teams manage their work and hopefully provide management with some kind of visibility into the work being done. One of the unfortunate truths about the tools is that while they are capable of doing a lot of things, most companies do not invest the time in setting the tool up to work for them. This often leads to teams struggling with having to adjust their practices to meet the tool and management not getting the visibility it needs into how the work is going.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
The tools can add a lot of value, but you have to get them set up right for that to happen.
In this episode of SoundNotes, Jessica Wolfe shares a story about how she was able to help one organization adjust the tool to provide the business with the information the CEO needed to understand how work was progressing across the portfolio and how it was tying back to the company’s strategic objectives.
As they dig into the story, Jessica and Dave explore what kinds of information the tools are able to provide, and how that can help your organization understand what is happening at a level of detail that includes strategic value, financial metrics, risk and much more.
She also manages to completely change Dave’s long mistrust of anything other than post-its and sharpies.
