Keep it Safe

SPEAKER(S):
Charlie Meier
Agile Product Owner, Sourcewell Technology

“Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in event of success” With respect to uncertainty of value, Shackleton’s alledged 1913 ad for polar exploration could as easily have been used to describe most projects, except with technology projects even that last part doesn’t always happen. If Shackleton’s ad has a ring of truth for you then join us as we explore the why, when & how Agile methodology can help when value uncertainty is high and some level of complete service needs to be delivered ASAP.
