Event / Details

Lean+Agile 2017
Agile Beyond IT: To Agility and Beyond!


Gone are the days where we can “throw things over the wall” to our customers.   Agile methods (Scrum, XP, Kanban, etc) have a growing intersection with the Lean Startup movement that is creating great excitement.  Lean Startup techniques are helping agile practitioners “get out the building” and perform customer development. Lean+Agile 2017 is a space to share solutions at the exciting intersection of Agile and Lean Startup methods.

We’re proud to present two incredible tracks of speakers surrounding topics of Agile Outside IT (Delivery) and Lean Startup (Discovery) for this year’s event. Check out both tracks of speakers below.
