DESCRIPTION: Throughout the City of San Jose, from Parks to Transportation, non-technical government teams are adopting Agile methods such as Scrum and Kanban. Though these methods were originally developed in the manufacturing and software industries, they can be applied in government to establish the virtuous habits of prioritizing, collaborating, and staying aligned as a team. In this panel, we'll provide an introduction to Agile methods, share our lessons learned, and give you tips on how to get started with your own team.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Non-technical government staff, but it’s relevant for anyone who wants to help their teams work better and smarter, whether in government or not, whether technical or not.
