Topic: Is Your Agile Program Agile?
Group participation and discussion lead by: Mark Title, Ph.D, PMP

Abstract: One of our most requested topics - how does your company do Agile software development?  Many of our members report combining Agile & waterfall methods in government or long-term programs.  Many skip the morning standups.  Others wonder about using Agile in non-software projects.  Let's compare notes!
