You may have noticed that the Chicago Visual Studio ALM user group has been ramping down, and in its place we are ramping up an Agile Lunch and Learn series. This past winter we had a Release Management and DevOps themes event, this Spring we covered SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework), and this Fall we are introducing a talk on Rapid Product Development. I am really excited about this one, as its a topic near and dear to my agile heart, and the speaker (Zach Beer) is someone who has lived rapid product development for a good portion of his career. Zach is a recent addition to the Polaris family and he has some amazing experiences in the Chicago Startup community to draw from for this talk. We are so excited to have him on our team, and to be able to bring his expertise to our clients and the community. Check out the details below, and sign up soon if you are interested, we have only 16 spots available for this one. Below are the details…
Agile Lunch and Learn: Rapid Product Delivery
Do you feel like your team is grasping at straws about what your customers want? Do your customers wait weeks or months for a release that doesn’t address their most pressing needs?
Lots of organizations struggle to find the most effective way to meet their customers’ needs. Agile processes like Scrum can help organize teams, but they don’t explicitly show teams how to deliver the most value to customers. In this presentation, we’ll discuss how choosing what you work on is as important as how you work on it, how product development can go sideways, and what strategies your team can use immediately to start delivering value to your customers sooner.
Please join our Agile experts for this free lunch and learn to hear more about how you can transform your company into a high-performance customer-pleasing engine.
Complimentary lunch will be provided to registered attendees.
Seating is limited. Register now!
