When: January 12, 2017 (Second Thursday) Networking: 5:30 - 6:00 pm Program: 6:00 - 7:30 pm.
For years now our work life has focused on project delivery and the associated dates and deliverables to please internal customers, Agile allows us to focus on something more important; product delivery. Remember - the customer doesn’t know or care about our internal projects, they care about product and its arrival at their door.
The ability to change our entire delivery focus and ability is a game changer and should be seen as such. The chance to re-invent the wheel, if you will. In this talk, we’ll be discussing the options of the changes you need to make and how you can help your organization through this incredible change.
