    About the Topic:

    Has your organization resisted transforming to Agile? Or, are you part of a team that wants to make the move but doesn't know how to start?

    The most stressful part of transitioning to Agile in a Waterfall environment happens at the beginning-in the uncertainty of how to get started. This presentation reveals practical concrete steps you can take to begin incorporating time-tested Agile practices that will help your team move the needle. The key? You don't have to transition to Agile all at once-or even all together.

    There are several key Agile practices that waterfall teams can use to improve agility without going through the full Agile transformation and staying within the waterfall umbrella-or even adopting a hybrid Agile/Waterfall approach.

    This presentation is targeted toward managers and project team members who want to begin incorporating Agile practices. Attendees will learn how to adapt basic Agile practices in a waterfall environment. They will leave with the knowledge and skills to begin taking their first steps toward Agile transformation.
