The Agile Forum meetings offer an opportunity for professional networking and knowledge sharing with other agile practitioners as well as provide a learning environment for professionals interested in learning about agile techniques. Everyone is welcome to participate.
As Agile grows in popularity, many PMs and BAs are investing their time in learning about, and gaining certifications in, Agile approaches & practices. Unfortunately for some, when they return to their ‘real world’ situation, they find themselves working on projects that remain entrenched in a Waterfall approach to delivery. This can sometimes lead to frustration, as these PMs and BAs find that they cannot apply their Agile learnings to their projects.
Here’s the good news… Many of the approaches (and SOME of the practices) that these PMs and BAs learned in their Agile training can be applied directly to Waterfall projects to improve performance, transparency, and teamwork, as well as increase feedback. The purpose of this presentation is to share ideas about how each of us can build Lean Agile principles into our Waterfall projects.
