Meetup #8: Get it Done! Applying Agile Methods to Life or Business

Hello Agilists! 

Since the last Monday of May is memorial day. We are planning to hold our next meetup on Monday, June 2nd at 6pm. The topic will be Get it Done! Applying Agile Methods to Life or Business by Jesse Fewell. 

Get it Done! Applying Agile Methods to Life or Business

For years now, agile methods have become the standard for software projects, helping companies deliver more product, faster, with higher quality. But what about the rest of us? What if I work in public utilities? What if I work in manufacturing, or the automotive field, or marketing campaigns? This cutting-edge presentation will reveal several case studies of unconventional uses of agile methods, along with some overarching principles and patterns to help you apply them to your own work, whether it be book publishing or personal fitness.

    Jesse is very knowledgable and entertaining at the same time. He turned topic that could be boring to be very interesting by focusing at the good points.

    Jesse did a great job presenting on how organizations/teams/individuals have used agile methods on projects other than software. And the free book was a nice touch!
