Come join us for a great night talking about Scrum. Be sure to reach out to those old and new and invite them to discuss the most popular Agile delivery system today.

Summary:

Even projects that have solid, well-defined project plans encounter some degree of change and waste. Shifting market conditions, budget cuts, staff restructuring, or any number of influences can disrupt the best plan while contributing to customer dissatisfaction and staff discouragement. Moreover, projects that begin with changing or unclear requirements make it difficult to establish even basic project expectations. Scrum is the agile project management development methodology that allows teams to deliver usable software iteratively and incrementally throughout the life of the project, absorbing change and new requirements as the project proceeds.

Is Scrum for you and your organization? To answer this question this session will present the basic concepts of the Scrum framework and how it differs from some traditional project management and product development methods. We’ll explore the major differences and where agile methods will tend to be more productive.

While this presentation is primarily focused on software development, the principles discussed can also be applied to non-software project environments.

Our speaker for the evening will be Certified Scrum Trainer Peter Borsella. Here's a little bit about our guest Peter:
