Filling in the gap between Agile and traditional project management with Serious LeAP
It has been proven difficult for agilists to bring the benefits of Agile to work environments with strong traditional project management practices. It has been similarly difficult for organizations to transition to Agile. This talk is to introduce you to Serious LeAP, which is an effective way to take care of those situations. Serious LeAP also fills in the gap that exists between Agile project management and traditional project management. This talk is based on my coming book "Serious LeAP™: Applying systems-lean-agile thinking and serious games to traditional project management"

These meetings will be monthly - happening on the last Thursday of every month at ISITE Design in NW Portland. To make the it even more interesting, we will have networking, food, and wine/beer the first hour, followed by the speaker for the 2nd hour, and then wrap up for the last 30 minutes. And the events will be FREE!
So, hope you can join us and make 2014 a Success for the Agile community in Portland!
