Agile Forum (Virtual) - 200519

"Stop Starting, Start Finishing!"

presented by Karen Powell and Douglas Boling

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.            


Do you ever get bogged down in “to do” lists? Are the requests for your time or your team’s time coming in faster than you can manage given the time, resources, and priorities on your plate?

Well there’s great news for you, your teams and the services that you manage, and it’s called The Kanban Method!

Join the May PMI Atlanta Agile Forum to learn how you can STOP STARTING AND START FINISHING in a humane way that enables improving service delivery, quality, catalyzes improvement and gives you a recipe for evolving to meet your customer’s needs.

The Kanban Method enables faster, more predictable delivery and an adaptive capability that enables you to respond effectively to changes from customer demand or your business environment.
