Using Agile Values, Principles, and Practices to Deliver Customer Value

Our primary speaker Rob Kurtz is a Delivery Lead for World Wide Technology – Application Services providing a layer of best-practice project management around engaged agile teams of software and mobile application developers to deliver valuable outcomes to customers. After the initial presentation, there will be break-out sessions with experts to delve into the aspect of Agile that you are most interested in. Throughout his 19-year career, Rob has had the pleasure to serve engineers, developers, and architects in both plan-driven and agile projects. He is passionate about building strong teams and helping them grow so, together, they can achieve amazing results.
