Free Webinar -  Seven Reasons Why Agile Sucks And What to Do About It

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER and earn ONE FREE PDU!
Live online Jun 14, 2016, 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM EST (or after on demand)

We don’t talk enough about the limitations of Agile and how many organizations choose to not use Agile at all due to the limitations. In this interactive discussion, we will cover the seven most common reasons why organizations say they cannot use Agile, and what can be done to address the constraint and implement a value delivering Agile lifecycle. We will cover the following areas:

I cannot use Agile because...​

  • My team is not dedicated to the project or is distributed around the world
  • My team is implementing a Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) Package which is mostly configuration
  • I must deliver a 90% accurate estimate for the project before development begins
  • Agile is for small projects. My project is big and will have 50 or more people working on it


Presented by:

Greg Smith, Agile Trainer PMI‐Agile Certified Practitioner®, Certified Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) Consultant.
