Bringing Agility to Your Company and Your Life
What attracts companies as widely varied as the FBI, Capital One, BMW, and Amazon.com to actively adopt agile software development methods? What happens when an organizational structure and culture that is optimized for “waterfall” delivery is asked to serve the rapid-cycle customer-driven development practices required by agile methods such as scrum? And, perhaps most importantly, why does a project’s leadership model so deeply and thoroughly affect your quality of daily life… both at work AND at home?
Join agile coach and scrum trainer Kert Peterson for a highly interactive presentation and lively dialogue in which you’ll discover:
- Why corporate projects are so challenging
- A new model of project leadership
- Why “relational wiring” is vital to this leadership
- How to cultivate an “agile mindset” at work and at home
Kert Peterson is an agile coach and trainer with more than 15 years of development, management, and marketing experience in the commercial software industry for clients such as IBM, Ernst & Young, NASA and Capital One. He’s currently working as an agile coach at Fidelity Investments in Raleigh, NC.
