Elsevier is a world-leading provider of information solutions that enhance the performance of science, health, and technology professionals, empowering them to make better decisions, deliver better care, and sometimes make groundbreaking discoveries, that advance the boundaries of knowledge and human progress.

We have 3 speakers lined up on the evening, all from the Agile Delivery team at Elsevier... Speaker 1: Sean Witter, Agile Delivery Manager Title: What is Agile? Introduction: I’ve heard a range of answers to this one. Everyone has their own opinion / understanding. Some people equate it to Scrum, others say, “it’s the Manifesto”. At the event, we’ll do a short exercise to explore our own understanding and see if we can define the field we’re in. Speaker 2: Ian Harvey, Senior Director of Program Management Title: The Agile Project Manager: Is it an oxymoron? Does a project manager have a role in a truly agile organisation? Introduction: This is a question many will have a strong view on. Without wanting to prejudice the discussion before it starts, Ian will talk about how his team support agile delivery at Elsevier. How they work in tandem with the agile specialists and what they do to make sure the organisation keeps focused on what really drives success. Speaker 3: Manuele Piastra, Scrum Master (CSP) & Agile Coach Title: The Product Owner, or Manager or Person. Introduction: The Product Owner in Scrum is a tough and often misunderstood role. I will go through the do's and don'ts of an effective Product Owner, sharing tips from experience.
