Effecting Change Through Agile Values with Executive Support

April 21, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Event Description:

Why Agile development is better than other methodologies but still faces an uphill battle with executives. Why do executives prefer Waterfall and don’t understand Agile. Understand why Agile is better and how to communicate that to the C-Suite (CFO, CEO, COO). What KPI’s and metrics can be used to drive business success without undermining team cohesion. How to incorporate concepts like architecture, design and user experience that often fall outside of Agile processes.

Presenter:

He has 17 years of experience in software development on complex financial and healthcare projects. He holds a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from Washington University and has worked in Chicago, New York, New Jersey, Texas, Belgium, London, Switzerland and of course Nashville.
