About the Presentation

In this engaging panel discussion, we delve into the world of Agile as well as who the Agile Business Consortium are. 

We look at why AgilePM works so well in other industries not just IT.  Specifically, we discuss why the Agile Business Consortium’s AgilePM certification enables and prepares Agile Project Managers to work in many different industry types, in both the IT and non-IT sectors.   

We discuss why building an Agile culture is so critical in any organization in order to be successful in today’s rapidly changing business landscape along with what business agility is and which resources are available to those who want to find out more.
