Diana Larsen

Diana Larsen leads you through an overview of the process for planning, designing, and conducting a liftoff, with agile chartering at its core. 


What is team liftoff? Space flights originate when a visionary identifies a research need and finds support for pursuing it. Software and IT projects originate when a sponsor recognizes a business need then authorizes an investment (in people and organizational resources) to address it. For both, to accomplish the intention, the next step is the team liftoff.

Every new product initiative has many parts, including:

  • A visionary with a Big Idea
  • Individuals who are directly and indirectly involved in achieving the result
  • A particular physical space(s) and psychological climate
  • Process tools and techniques

The first time all of these parts come together sets the tone and lays the foundation for everything to come later in the project. In this webinar, Cutter Senior Consultant Diana Larsen will lead you through an overview of the process for planning, designing, and conducting a liftoff, with agile chartering at its core. 

Larsen, along with Ainsley Nies, is the coauthor of Liftoff: Launching Agile Teams and Projects.
