Agility Cocktail Hour @ Ozumo

Come enjoy Japanese inspired cocktails and appetizers at the contemporary Ozumo restaurant and bar in Santa Monica!

Spend some time with us and your peers as we talk through key concepts of Agile as it relates to Project Management.

Sip a complimentary cocktail and learn why Agile is gaining momentum and recognition in its approach to delivering business value. Learn how to measure your delivery in terms of weeks or months versus years.

Nibble on edamame while we identify where you have opportunities to bring greater reliability and predictability to your projects and still work into your long-term strategic planning. We will walk through the basics of Scrum and Kanban to know which approach to Agile best fits specific projects. And, we will explore key best practices of each to ensure your teams and your customers benefit from selecting and implementing Agile.

Whether you are just considering Agile or have active implementations to take to the next level of maturity, this interactive presentation and discussion time is for you.

    Too many people in too small a space. There were a lot of newbies and not as many experienced people as I'd hoped for.
