Title: The Power of Inceptions
Speaker: Lakshmi Ramaseshan (an Agile Orlando alumni)

Abstract:
What is the value of Collaboration in your Organization? Are your teams aligned with the overall purpose & outcomes of an initiative they are working on? How might you change that & increase the chance of their success?

This discussion will focus on the value of Disciplined Collaboration in the way of an Inception. An Inception is when the whole team & other dependent team(s) come together for a day or two to align on The Strategy (Why), The Work (What) and The Team (How).

Creating a “Shared Understanding” and “Alignment” are the Goals of an Inception and when done well it can be very energizing for teams and set them up for success.
