About the webinar

Your Agile teams are busy. Busy delivering. Busy improving. Your quality is amazing. Rework is low. The product looks great. Your users love it. You are a high performing team!

But your internal customers say your teams are slow.  This session will teach you how to use the Theory of Constraints to figure out how to speed up, by finding the one thing that’s slowing them down.

This webinar will cover how, in an Agile environment:

  • to better control scope creep,
  • to reinforce your relationship with the I.T. Development team’s client,
  • to be able to make commitments and honour them and
  • to decide where your bottleneck should be.
