While you’re working hard with today’s technologies, you need to stay abreast of tomorrow’s innovations. On the next episode of the AlignIT Manager Tech Talk, Ruth and I will be chatting with Sam Guckenheimer, the man who wrote the book on Agile and Visual Studio, about how development teams can optimize Application Lifecycle Management, utilize advanced methods to deliver higher-value software faster, and systematically eliminate waste and inefficiency throughout the entire development lifecycle.

Join us for a discussion around concepts discussed in Sam’s latest book, Agile Software Engineering with Visual Studio: From Concept to Continuous Feedback including, but not limited to:

  • Empowering and engaging multidisciplinary self-managing teams
  • Overcoming causes of software waste, missed schedules, and poor quality
  • Reengineering development to remove overhead: make individuals more productive and empower high-performance teams
