Program managers especially, but also many project managers, use the organization's strategic goals and plans as inputs to their governance activities. Yet, often Program and Project Managers people are unclear about what exactly strategy is, and how it differs from goals and objectives. They need insight so they can step up and assure strategic alignment.

Over the past 10 years, agile methods have grown in size and popularity to the point that even the Federal Government is requesting agile RFPs. Unfortunately, lots of FUD exists about how agile methods interact with traditional project management methods. In this talk,
Cory Foy will discuss the real world implications of applying agile methods to projects, and debunk claims such as "You can't give estimates with Agile", "You can't follow a plan with Agile" and "Teams are self-managing, so we don't need project managers!"
