Agile Transformation Journey
Wednesday September 20th 2017 at 6PM
Featuring Candie Becraft
(location details provided below Eventbrite link)
About The Presentation:
When going from Waterfall to Agile software development methodology, there are many factors to making the transformation successful. Team ‘compliance’ will not get the desired results, but rather getting team ‘buy-in’ is key. In this presentation, Candie will share her learnings in different agile transformations and explore some key factors to success in obtaining team buy-in to the change.
About The Presentor:
Candie Becraft has over 20 years’ experience in supply chain and IT in multiple industries, where she has led many successful supply chain software implementations, support and improvement teams at companies such as Grainger, USFoods, CHRobinson, Caterpillar and USFLogistics. Throughout her career, Candie has been on both sides of complex change initiatives, either running the operations and working closely with IT to deliver technology solutions or on the IT side, partnering with the business to establish a technology roadmap to meet the business strategy, so she has a unique understanding of the distinct challenges from both perspectives. Candie also has a 6 sigma certification and is passionate about developing highly successful teams by bringing together people, process and technology to help solve complex business opportunities.
