Tuesday 4th Oct: Cincinnati Children’s Agile Journey

Learn from the experience of a team at Cincinnati Children's on the challenges they were facing using traditional waterfall method and why they decided to give the Agile process a try. Join Marjorie and Robyn as they share their experiences
over the last two years.


Abstract: We had been facing challenges using the traditional waterfall method and needed to improve project outcomes. After attending several Agile presentations we decided to give the Agile process a try. Join us as we share our experiences over the last two years of using the Agile framework. We’ll discuss how we introduced it, what type of projects we have implemented using this process and how we keep spreading the word and moving forward. We’ll be talking about what went well; the positive impacts we have made delivering projects at CCHMC and, of course, what can be improved!
