From $10M to $100M: A Guide to Scaling Agile Teams

Any exec will tell you their company’s #1 goal can be summed up in a single word: Growth. Though a seemingly easy concept, growth can be impossible to execute if you fail to scale the rest of the business. What moved the needle as a start-up may be ineffective after the first million, & will certainly slow a $100M-company down. But how do you maintain the agility of a small company & guarantee increased predictability as you grow? The answer lies in techniques like Kanban, which can help maintain continuity, & provide transparency & visibility within an org. Hear tried-and-true stories from tech companies that successfully integrated Kanban & get tips on how to bring it into your own org.
