Quote of the Day: “Quality, relevant content can’t be spotted by an algorithm. You can’t subscribe to it. You need people – actual human beings – to create or curate it.” ― Kristina Halvorson, Content Strategy for the Web

The agile practice promises a factor of 4 or more outcomes and benefits than traditional project management techniques.  This webinar explores the actions needed to achieve the 4x more phenomena with engaged teams.  The agile practice also removes silos and truly accomplishes stronger cross-functional team engagement.
