Hi All,

We have found a great new sponsor and place to have our meetings. The Intercontinental Hotels Group will be providing space for our meetings going forward. IHG will also provide food for the January meeting.

The location is right off of Ashford Dunwoody in the Ravinia office complex. From I-285 E/W take the Ashford Dunwoody exit, and go north. Turn east onto Ravinia drive just north of the interstate. You will pass the Crown Plaza hotel on the left, take the next left at the Ravinia Club sign. The entrance to Building 3 will be on your right. Go straight past the Building 3 entrance and park in the garage directly ahead.

The building is secured so we will meet in the Building Three lobby and go upstairs as a group at 6:25 sharp - there is a set of couches between the security desk and the garden area just inside the main entrance. Please let me know if you will arrive after 6:25 so we can arrange to have someone meet you and bring you upstairs.

New opportunities for Agile experts: Scaling Agility beyond Software.

Duration

Description
Agile has gone mainstream in software development organizations. The next wave of Agile adoptions will take place in Systems and Product Development organizations. These companies require a unique approach and proficiency in scaling Agility to successfully manage development domains such as software, hardware, systems, deployment, supply-chain, and firmware that often require the complex coupling of Agile with Waterfall and Stage-Gate processes. In other words, there are tremendous opportunities for Agile experts to help companies scale Agility beyond Software. Karl will provide an overview of these markets, and resulting opportunities for Agile practitioners.
