Event Details

ABSTRACT: Agile methods like Scrum, XP and Kanban have moved into the mainstream in both the private and public sectors.   Successful practitioners have cut development lead times, improved product quality and have reduced costs.  As the agile movement enters its second decade, how can we apply fundamental agile tenets to deliver further organizational improvement?  The true promise of agile lies in helping drive improvement in 3 areas: team evolution with Lean Startup and Kanban, personal mastery through discipline and flow; and wise leadership.


SPEAKER: Sanjiv Augustine is an industry-leading agile and lean expert, author, speaker, management consultant and trainer.  He is the President of LitheSpeed, an agile consulting, training and product development company.  He is the author of the book Managing Agile Projects (Prentice Hall 2005) and several publications including Transitioning to Agile Project Management: A Roadmap for the Perplexed, The Lean-Agile PMO: Using Lean Thinking to Accelerate Agile Project Delivery; and the founder and moderator of the Yahoo! Agile Project Management discussion group.  Sanjiv is also a founder and advisory board member of the Agile Project Leadership Network (APLN), and an organizing member of the Project Management Institute (PMI)'s Agile Community of Practice.  He presents regularly at several agile and PMI user groups and conferences worldwide.  As an in-the-trenches practitioner, he has personally managed agile projects varying in size from five to over one hundred people, trained thousands of agile practitioners via workshops and conference presentations, and coached numerous project teams.
