Virtual Meeting Online

Agile Revisited: What’s the Big Deal?
Presented by: Ben Rodilitz, CSP, SPC5, PMP – Agile Coach at Stellar Solutions

Registration for this online event is limited to 100 attendees. Register for the event as usual. We'll send you the meeting link and password after registration closes at 8 pm the evening before the event.

Abstract: “Agile” has become such a mainstream choice for software projects, it might be useful to take a step back and discuss the basics. We’ll start by looking at the origins of agile, review Lean Manufacturing precepts, and learn the main ideas that form the foundation for the agile software development movement.

We will discuss the key concepts central to Agile methodologies, and just as important – discuss about what agile isn’t, as well as review some basic concepts that should be understood and embraced for successful agile implementations.

Ben Rodilitz, Certified Scrum Professional, SAFe Program Consultant, and PMP, started his agile journey teaching Pattern of Problem Solving at UCLA. After a short detour (30 years) of software development and traditional project management positions in aerospace, financial and navigation companies, Ben started facilitating software development/delivery using Agile/Scrum in 2009 and has not looked back.

Ben’s most recent postings have been as an Agile Coach in agile transformations at Teradata, AT&T, Chevron, and Google. He is currently an Agile Coach with Stellar Solutions, working with Space Force on Future Operationally Resilient Ground Evolution. Ben has been a featured speaker/panelist at numerous Agile gatherings, but his initial presentations were to PMI-LA satellite meetings, and he is excited to be back helping the PMI-SD chapter and its members.
