You are cordially invited to the inaugural Agile & Entrepreneurship Meetup at Nancy Hands pub at Parkgate Street, Dublin on Thursday 22nd October.
We are delighted to have two top presenters: Claudio Perrone and Anna Kennedy. Both are experienced Agilistas and Entrepreneurs.
Claudio Perrone: Do the Right Thing, Do It Right - Journey Into Agile, Lean Software Development and Lean Startup
"If you were so smart, why did you fail?" Lean & Agile sensei Claudio Perrone has been haunted by this question for years. Until, one day, he discovered a world that recognized the challenges he once faced and gave him a new path to explore and develop.
In this session, Claudio will bring you along a breathtaking journey into the core of the Agile, Lean Software Development and Lean Startup revolutions.
Moving from operational excellence to breakthrough innovation, he will help you understand the crucial differences and opportunities that each bring. But don't get too comfortable. For a new revolution is now on your doorstep.
