“How to build a strategy in an agile environment” talk for The Product School

Summary of the talk on October 12, 2016:

Groups that have embraced agile methodology (both upper and lowercase ‘a’) are unsure they are contributing to their organization’s long term success. The team makes progress sprint-over-sprint, but how do they know if you are always headed the right direction? Strategy for agile teams is about how they link the high level decisions that leaders make with the day-to-day actions that team members make.
