Event Overview:
As with any new way of doing business, Agile methods have generated quite a bit of controversy within the software community. Yet since their emergence, in project after project, they have continued to deliver higher quality software systems in less time than traditional processes. Our keynote speakers will present a case study that includes a 35-minute interactive session with attendees.

Our Presenters:
Brian has over 25 years of experience driving other leaders and global teams in the creation of large-scale software solutions with a passion for quality, timeliness, and agile methodologies. He has influenced and led company-wide agile transformations in traditionally change-resistant organizations such as medical and financial services industries.
Naeem has over 15 years of experience in IT in healthcare, banking, telecommunication and education industries. He served as the Head of Technology Services at ING DIRECT Bank, one of the largest online banks in the world. Naeem led the implementation of DevOps and corresponding agile technical practices at the bank.

Who should attend:
If you are a software team member, including project manager, team lead, development manager, product manager, architect, developer or tester, this program is a must for you. Additionally, CIOs and CTOs of organizations who have, or will be migrating to an Agile environment, will find this workshop helpful.

This workshop is co-sponsored by Apex Systems and Penn State Great Valley, Continuing Professional Education Department.

Agile Power Alliance is the official Users Group for the Greater Philadelphia area's Scrum Alliance.
