Dancing Inside the Waterfall: Borrowing Agile concepts to benefit your Waterfall project
Agile concepts can benefit every project, including waterfall implementations! Join us for this popular discussion where you'll learn four key concepts applied in agile work efforts, understand the benefits and uses of these concepts in every project, learn how to avoid “agile prejudice” regarding using these ideas, and how to overcome objections by being able to talk about these ideas without ever mentioning agile!
