  • Introduce strategies for aligning teams around value streams that can maximize flow, minimize dependencies and provide end-to-end delivery.
  • Identify the many skill gaps that can occur and explain the intentional focus on growth that is necessary to address these gaps. Discuss ways to enable the growth of individuals with T-Shaped skills.
