About the Event
Are you running into issues using Agile methods on your project? Do people argue over who should attend which meetings? Do you have unanswered questions about how Project Managers fit into the Agile World?
This meetup is for people who have discovered the path to agile methods is not the easy street that was promised. We will learn from other project leaders which issues are common, and which are unique to your context. Furthermore, we’ll collect from each other several ideas for how to overcome those issues.
Unlike other meetups, this is not a lecture. Instead, our facilitator will create an interactive exchange of which issues are bothering you, and which tips have worked for others. Please come to learn, share and experience conversations that will yield actionable tips for common issues with Agile methods.
This meet-up has a focus on Agile PM. We will be discussing pragmatic solutions to real agile project problems. Just real PMs talking about the Agile and how we can solve daily challenges.
Building Doors locked at 6:00 PM. Please make sure you arrive prior to 6:00 PM.
