 Delivering Quality Solutions in Rapidly Changing Markets with Scrum


Program Overview:

The pace of change in the world is accelerating. Increasingly dynamic markets, rising customer expectations, and quickly evolving technology demand that successful companies continue to learn faster than their competitors. Scrum is a learning framework that enables all types of companies, not just software providers, to adopt a new mindset that enables organizational agility.

This 45 minute presentation will provide an overview of Scrum as a way of implementing Agile. It will cover the team roles, activities, and typical outcomes experienced by organizations as they transition to using Scrum. 15 minutes of Q&A will be available at the end.

June 15, 2017: Leadership Versus Management in Quality Organizations
Program Overview: What is leadership? What is management? How do they complement each other? And most importantly to you (us): how do these varied approaches impact the quality organization? Peter Drucker said, “Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” There are many definitions of leadership and even more opinions of what “good” leadership is.
