What is Agile? Why do I care? How is it relevant to me? These common questions reflect the state of confusion and ambiguity that surrounds the concept of agility. This webinar will attempt to resolve these questions by cutting through the ambiguity with practical, relevant insights into agility and its application to project teams - including teams not using iterative techniques in the design and scheduling of their projects. Real world examples of application in linear, task-driven projects in complex, regulated environments will provide a context for how agility can be applied even when your team isn't an "Agile team".
