Customer Connections in the New Economy
Back in the nineteen hundreds we enjoyed direct connections with our customers. If we could not meet them face-to-face, we could chat on the phone or use email to establish a personal connection. That all changed a decade ago with the mass adoption of the World Wide Web, and it was a good change. We could offer more services for less money, but the customer connection changed. How do we build relationships, promote our products and services, and prepare for an uncertain and rapidly changing future?
This conference will be unusual in that it focuses on several levels of technology leadership. It dives deep into leading edge technology because all information technology leaders must stay current or die on vine to be replaced by the next generation of technologists. It focuses on customers because they define the return on investment. Without customers we are out of business. Finally, it focuses on an integrated approach to the problem with a facilitated discussion to be lead by technology leadership veterans.

Thursday, May 8 - Monthly Lunch Briefing
Implementing Agile in a Waterfall Culture
If your projects are fixed price, fixed scope, with fixed release dates, you are, by definition, waterfall. But your team can still go Agile for more effective project management. If you can change the company culture to accept Agile, the whole company can benefit, not just your team. Michael will provide an overview of the Scrum process, along with insight into the struggles encountered when the rest of the company has their own process to follow.
Guests $35, Members $25
