We will try to wrap up by 7:15 pm. As always, dinner will be on the house.

This month's topic is a case study on "Introducing agile into a waterfall world" to be presented by Troy Bitter.

So I got my wish. I proposed doing the organization's first agile project and management said yes. Now what? I read the books, attended webinars, but have never led an agile project. The organization is very waterfall centric, documentation happy, and ingrained in their ways. Did I really think this through?

Please join me as we review a real-life case study of how I introduced agile into a waterfall world. Learn from our mad, sad, & glad steps (and missteps) of introducing agile at the tactical level of those who are needed to deliver it - the developers, QA, PM, Operations, product owners, related mgmt, environment support teams, and more.

Not to spoil the ending but there is a happy ending. After two years, we continue down the agile path, continuing to mature our processes, continues to mature our understanding, continuing to deliver value.

Presenter - Troy Bitter
