Discussion Topic: How Large Companies Can Get Some of That "Agile Mojo"
Moderator: Scott Sehlhorst, Agile Project Manager for Tyner Blain
Date: Thursday, August 8, 2013 1:00 - 1:30 pm
Most large company projects look something like this: have an idea, build a business case, get funding, get resources, then start the project months later. Once the funding is committed, middle managers make it difficult to revisit assumptions, change directions, or do anything other than execute against last year's idea. You're fighting an uphill battle in the organization—but it is one worth fighting.
Now that you've got people and time with the opportunity to actually validate the ideas that justified the funding, you have the opportunity to make sure the project is worth doing, make it even more valuable, or kill it before wasting the time and money and free people up to work on what's really important. That's what that "agile mojo" is really about.
Join Scott Sehlhorst and your colleagues on August 8 at 1:00pm EST to discuss how to harness some of that small-company mojo for a large organization.
The MeetUp is limited to the first 25 people on a first-come, first-served basis, so bookmark your calendar for 1:00 - 1:30 pm EST on Thursday, August 8!
