Dancing inside the Waterfall:
Borrowing Agile Concepts to Benefit Your Waterfall Project

Presenter: Ryland Leyton, CBAP, PMP, CSM, SPC4.


Date: Thursday, June 17, 2021
Time: 6:00 p.m to 7:15 p.m
Venue: Virtual (Event link to be provided following registration)

Description of Presentation: Agile concepts can benefit every project, including waterfall implementations! In this session we show how to apply core agile concepts in any situation and avoid saying agile “trigger” words that could create resistance. No agile experience is required to benefit from this session. While the presentation is software focused, examples from other industries will be explored.

Learning Objective of Presentation:
1. Learn four key concepts applied in agile work efforts.
2. Understand the benefits and uses of these concepts in every project.
3. Learn how to avoid “agile prejudice” regarding using these ideas, and how to overcome objections.
4. Have a means for conversing about these ideas without mentioning agile
