Scrum Breakfast im February: Agile Governance

Once again, we are fortunate to welcome an international speaker to Zurich for the Scrum Breakfast. Pierre NEIS is a Sr. Management Consultant who is active in the Finance industry in and around Luxembourg. His topic:

Adoption of an Agile Governance Model

As a corporate leader, program or business manager, or line manager, you want your IT and Development activities to be aligned with your business. As more and more companies are doing Scrum, you are thinking about the implications of Scrum on your organization. Scrum promises better business alignment, higher employee productivity and satisfaction, and ultimately better profitability, but seems chaotic and uncontrolled. How do you implement Scrum in your company? How do you keep things under control?

This talk is for corporate leaders contemplating Scrum and anyone who wants to talk to them about the how and why of Scrum in medium and large companies. Pierre E. Neis will discuss the challenges facing companies adopting Scrum and discuss solutions for ensuring business alignment, minimizing overhead of project organization, reducing the risks and costs of IT, and optimizing portfolio management.

Pierre is Director of Consulting at AgilePartner LLC, President of the Agile Interest Group, Member of the PMI as well as co-founder of the Agile User Group in Saar, Germany. The talk will be held in English.
