This month, Neil covers two topics on Agile and Project Management. Part 1 discusses some of the reasons why Agile teams run into problems and how to overcome them. Part 2 discusses some of the project manager traits that lead projects (agile or not) to either be successful or run into problems.
Eric Lucas will present methods for identifying and finding good Project Manager candidates and will provide tips on how to interview for a Project Manager position from both the hiring manager and the candidate’s perspective. During the second half of the meeting, we will have an open forum with local recruiters answering questions on the local market, sourcing candidates, and getting a Project Manager position. Great advice for candidates and for hiring managers!

In this lively and interactive program you’ll learn how to manage those risks to make your communication more effective, more powerful and more fully human.

Many believe a great project or a great product is one that is completed on-time, within budget, and with high quality.
