Steve Cover has led several agile transformations at companies around Atlanta and is going to come and share his insights around what makes agile work, what leads to a successful transformation, and how you can talk to your executives about the merits of agile. Steve told me that he'd like this to be a very interactive session so bring your questions and be prepared to learn a ton. VersionOne is sponsoring us this month... thanks VersionOne!
