Agile projects require a different approach to project/product initiation and planning to facilitate organizational success. in this talk, I will describe the elements of an Agile Financial Hierarchy that, if followed, will increase the empowerment and effectiveness of agile teams, support quality metrics and reporting and, ensure decisions are aligned with organizational objectives.
