“Bringing Agile principles and practices to Agile Business Analysis and Product Ownership”
Together, we share ways Agile principles and practices enable us to increase our capacity to deliver products that please our customers, satisfy our business sponsors, build collaborative development communities, and change the world through great products that matter.
You set the agenda, exchange as peers, build our network, and engage in deep peer-to-peer learning.
Angie Doyle, an Agile Coach, Trainer and Consultant from IQ Business will be the Agile Open Space Facilitator.
Ellen Gottesdiener (one of the producers of the Agile Product Open (APO) in Boston in 2016 ), will be joining us for the first event of its kind on the African continent!
