Event Details

Deliver Faster, with Less Errors, On Time, and generate Higher Customer Satisfaction

Agile methodology first began its roots within the Software Development community; a community that produced customer-centric products through early, responsive and continuously iterative design processes – all without generating waste.

Can Agile methodology then be applied to non IT work? What if the projects are in the HR or Marketing area – can Agile help there? Discover the underlying characteristics of Agile and find out how you could apple these principles in your organisation at our next Lessons for Improvement.

Hear from three professionals – all  from different sectors – who have utilised Agile in order to produce high value work. Join in on the discussion and networking by registering today.
