Boost Team Engagement with Agile

Speaker: Anthony Crain, Agile Transformation Consultant at cPrime, and Zach Wolfe, Enterprise Customer Success Manager at Wrike

Agile Methodology has led to an era of transparency and collaboration within software and development teams.

How do we bridge the gap between technical and non-technical teams to create a holistically agile project? The key is engagement. The engineering team doesn't need to have marketing degrees, and the marketing team doesn’t need a coding bootcamp. What they do need is a sense of engagement in each aspect of the project, and the ability to collaborate as effectively as possible.
