Agile, Iterative, Modular – Get Beyond The Buzzwords

Whether you call it Agile, Iterative, or Modular project management, most agencies are transitioning some of their projects from traditional waterfall methods to techniques that focus on shorter-turnaround, regularly reprioritized deliveries of working products (be that software or other).

To increase government workers’ knowledge of these techniques, ASPE, Inc., invites you to register and attend our free Beyond the Buzzwords lunch and learn series in downtown DC this summer.

Very cool Robert, I love that these focus on lean/agile and other methods away from the traditional long cycle time waterfall approaches.
