This event is being held at AT&T (formerly DirecTV) in El Segundo.  The main presentation is a webinar.  You can choose to just view the webinar remotely.

Featured Speaker: Patrick van Abbema, Senior Management Consultant with AltNexus Corp.

Many of today’s Project Management and Business Analyst Professionals are finding themselves leading, managing and analyzing on  Agile development teams - only to find that many of the tools and techniques applied when using a traditional project management approach no longer work as effectively or at all. In order to do more than survive in this iterative development environment, today’s Project Manager and Business Analyst must employ additional project management and business analysis tools and techniques to effectively lead their teams and deliver their projects.

The use of agile as an approach to managing projects has been increasing dramatically over the last several years. Gartner predicts that by the end of 2012, agile development methods will be used on 80% of all software development projects.

This webinar will introduce to you how your projects can easily and successfully make the transition to an effective Agile environment. Agile Scrum is an incremental, iterative framework for project management and software development - where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing cross-functional teams.

Webinar Objectives:

In this webinar, we will introduce you to the essential skills required for Project Managers and Business Analysts to successfully manage Agile Projects.
