About the Event

Are you running into issues using Agile methods on your project? Do people argue over who should attend which meetings? Do you have unanswered questions about how Project Managers fit into the Agile World?

This meetup is for people who have discovered the path to agile methods is not the easy street that was promised. We will learn from other project leaders which issues are common, and which are unique to your context. Futhermore, we’ll collect from each other several ideas for how to overcome those issues.

Unlike other meet-ups, this is not a lecture. Instead, our facilitator will create an interactive exchange of which issues are bothering you, and which tips have worked for others. Please come to learn, share and experience conversations that will yield actionable tips for common issues with Agile methods.

About the Agile Meet-up
This meet-up has a focus on Agile PM. We will be discussing pragmatic solutions to real agile project problems. Just real PMs talking about the Agile and how we can solve daily challenges.

Special Instructions: 

Parking is free and available in the front of the building. There will be signs directing students to the Atrium Entrance, which is between the 2002 and 2000 buildings. Atrium doors will open 15 minutes ahead of the scheduled class. Please note that there is a fair amount of construction activity next to our building as they are completing the Silver Line Reston Town Center stop. Please leave a few extra minutes of travel time due to this construction activity.
