Product Owner Forum: Telling the Story of Being Agile in a Non-Agile Organization

Please join your product peers in a forum for discussing how you can support Agile adoption throughout your organizations. You’ll discuss the challenges we face in telling our story, varying levels of adoption, and stakeholder support. Discussion includes (but it is not limited to) the following:

  • How do you manage release plans and coordinate those with non-agile teams?
  • How do you deal with “old” expectations of process and deliverables?
  • How do you work with the business to prioritize and help them focus on those top priority items?
  • How do your business partners react to increased participation (is there increased participation!)?
  • How do you deal with leaders who aren’t on board or understand the goals of becoming agile?


The first 15 minutes of the forum is driven by thought leaders from Allina Health as they share their best practices related to a few of the topics above. The remaining 45 minutes is discussion driven and will be spent in small group breakout rooms so attendees can network, share best practices, ask questions, learn from each other and more. Attendees should come ready to share, learn, and contribute to the peer-to-peer discussion.
