Case studies of failed deliveries abound and too often reach general public notoriety. This talk shows organic paths to close gaps between business goals and actual systems development efforts by applying focused methods and processes already implicit in agile approaches. We will discuss use of scrums capable of sprint-speed definition of business objectives and value drivers and how to incorporate scrum and other agile techniques to the management of multiple team efforts in larger enterprises. Management tools and methods discussed include scrum team member selection for higher performance in targeted production. This presentation shows a simple and flexible approach to managing large enterprise systems development challenges successfully with key metrics and drivers defined via agile teams
