Presentation Topic:  Taming the dragon and slaying the princess.

Presentation Description:

In this tale of modern day knighthood, we will take a journey through distant lands where danger lurks and great peril awaits those that do not set clear strategic goals whilst ascending on the roadmap of success.

In this epic story we will come across multiple stakeholders such as frustrated villagers, screaming elves, angry giants and annoyed wizards in a mission of taming the dragon and slaying the princess. It’s also about taking control of your backlog, building a strategic roadmap, working with key stakeholders and keeping the boss happy.
