Myth #1: Agile principles are only relevant to software development projects.
Myth #2: “Being Agile” means that you never have to document anything and don't need to schedule out past your next sprint.
Myth #3: As long as you have a daily stand-up, you are Agile.
Fact: Incorporating Agile principles into your next project can improve the quality of your product, allow you to release value to customers faster, and improve your team’s morale and effectiveness.
Sound too good to be to true? Come learn about how any team can do twice the work in half the time - and how you as a Project Manager can bring this productivity to any project and any environment.
Register for the dinner meeting here.

About the PM Industry Insights
PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.
These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc.
Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
