The October Agile KC meeting will be held at 6:30 PM at Centriq Training on Thursday October 24, 2013.  This will be a hosted event so please visit to register if you plan on attending so our sponsor knows how many will be joining us for dinner.  

Meeting Topic:      Understanding Agile as a cultural, organizational change transformation.

Meeting Learning:  Attendees will introduced to the field of Industrial Psychology with respect cultural transformations and how this large body of knowledge can be leveraged metrics to assist with Agile initiatives.

Meeting Description: 

The number one reason for agile adoption/transformation failures is Culture. Agile philosophies continue to uncover traditional business issues related to system and people. These Agile initiatives have reached the limit of IT’s ability to make further progress. People and Culture need to be addressed in a cross-disciplinary fashion – a systems-thinking approach – in order to make progress.

This will be an interactive presentation for anyone interested in viewing Agile as a cultural and organizational change initiative over process mechanics. Anyone interested in learning from an industry leading organizational psychologist and marrying that data to a repeatable on-going Agile/organizational metrics assessment.

About the Speakers: 

You can find more about the trio from Convergent that will be leading the presentation, Dr. Jared Lock, Nathan Lagergren and Brett Gibson by visiting their profiles at
