Join us for a roundtable discussion of some of the challenges and best practices in PI Planning. Come prepared with your questions for our panel of industry luminaries including Dr. Suzette Johnson, Ken Clyne and Dave Witkin.

Dr. Johnson is a frequent speaker at Agile Conferences and leads Northrop Grumman's Agile Center of Excellence.

Over the course of 20 years coaching Ken Clyne has been a trusted advisor to some of the worlds largest companies as they embark on their Agile journey. His diverse portfolios include energy, manufacturing, banking, insurance and high-tech sectors. Ken was scaling Agile before it was a buzzword and has a wealth of experience coaching teams, teams-of-teams and leadership. Ken Clyne is the founding member of Agile 64.

For over 25 years, Mr. Dave Witkin has consulted to and provided training for large commercial and U.S. Government clients on large-scale Agile and traditional (i.e., waterfall) programs. Mr. Witkin is passionate about bringing the benefits of Agile to large (over $2B), high-risk Federal Government programs, which have been his focus for the last 18 years. He is currently the managing partner for Packaged Agile, a firm focused on effective Agile transformations for the U.S. Government. A recovering PMI Project Management Professional (PMP), he currently holds certifications including SAFe Program Consultant (SPC), SAFe Scrum Master (SSM), SAFe for Government Practitioner (SGP), Certified Scrum Master (CSM), and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO). His favorite quote, "Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth," is attributed to the underappreciated scholar, Mike Tyson.
