The Ask the Expert Webinar Series is an extension of the Ask the Expert Program offered at PMI® Global Conference. Each year, experts from the community offer one-on-one sessions to conference attendees, acting as mentors, coaches, and sounding boards for Project Managers at varying stages of their careers and across industries. Gain access to these leading project management and industry experts through the Ask the Expert Webinar Series – ask your most pressing Project Management questions, seek career advice, and gain insights into industry trends. Please join the webinar prepared to pose questions to the experts!

Software Development is part of the title of the Agile Manifesto but most of us don't build software applications so does this mean we can't "be" agile? This quarter join Dave Maynard & Kiron Bondale at our next Ask the Expert webinar to ask your challenging questions about improving the agility of your team (or organization) regardless of what type of projects you manage. This will also be an opportunity for you to ask our experts questions about their backgrounds and life experiences. We look forward to "seeing" you on Friday, September 18!
