AgileSoCal Meeting - Wednesday, October 21st 6:00 PM

The Power Of Inceptions with Lakshmi Ramaseshan

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?

Join as at our October meeting where Lakshmi Ramaseshan 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.


Your Presenter:

Lakshmi Ramaseshan works with companies & teams that need Agile Coaching, Agile Transformation and Process Improvement. With 20+ years in the software industry, her journey started as a developer on an agile team. She quickly realized good Product Development is all about having the Right conversations, building Happy teams and being aligned with your Customer.

Lakshmi is passionate about growing people, fostering Trust amongst the team members and building high performance teams. She also enjoys the challenge of helping teams adopt the Right Frameworks to achieve better business outcomes.
