The Executive Action Team as an Enabler for Business Agility with Certified Trainer Jon Spruce

Topic Description

In this Scrum@Scale webinar, Certified Trainer Jon Spruce will walk registrants through a recent case study on how Scrum@Scale patterns were used for a large scale Agile and engineering transformation at a major UK bank. In his presentation, Jon will focus on the role and structure of the Executive Action Team (EAT) within the Scrum@Scale framework.

Some questions that will be addressed:

  • What is the purpose of an Executive Action Team?

This 45 minute webinar will explore this real-world Scrum@Scale application and detail the benefits of an Executive Action Team as a key enabler to Agility. Jon will present for 30 minutes, and host a 15 minute interactive Q&A.
