Reading: Agile Program and Portfolio Management – Agile2012 Slide Deck

220 people signed up for this talk but I think the room was at capacity at about 125 or 150.  Great turnout and lots of great discussion.  Mary Poppendieck came to my talk and said it was excellent.  That is very humbling. Even better that she came because she heard the talk yesterday was so good ;-)  Flattered and blushing!
