Title:
Agile Thinking Beyond Software Development

Abstract:
It seems to be clear, that agile methods have quickly become main stream for software development. More and more individuals, groups, and organizations are realizing that the basic concepts of agile thinking are actually applicable outside of software development. In the talk I will present ideas and examples of how agile principles can be or are applied more general. I hope this will spark a discussion on what is the core of agile and when does "thinking agile" help to succeed.

Bio:
Peter is Director of Product Management at Pharsight, responsible for Pharsight's enterprise products: PKS, a clinical data repository, and AutoPilot, a PK Automation tool. During his career, he worked in software development in very different industries ranging from automotive, to military and aerospace and to the pharmaceutical industry. He has acquired specific expertise in modeling and simulation and related mathematical methods and in Internet-based services. Since 2005, he has worked with Pharsight and its customers to develop software tools for more efficient clinical data management and analysis that include automated creation and maintenance of pharmacokinetics reports and presentations. Beside his day job, Peter started more than year ago working on his own software products and on agile coaching concepts that go beyond software development - simply because it's more fun than to work for money

Peter holds a Master's degree in Mathematics and Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Engineering from German Universities. He is certified as Scrum Master and Product Owner.

    I absolutely disagreed with most of the content of this presentation. To improve it, I would have preferred a forum or open space or panel on this topic rather than a presentation. The strongest parts of the evening were those where the topic stimulated a discussion with the participants.

    A very informative session and Peter did a great job. I also got a lot out of the discussions that came out of the audience questions and answers.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
