Agile + Jira meetup has already interested more than 200 people to attend two weeks before the actual start. The number is significant taking into consideration the fact of very limited timing of the event: only 2 hours to communicate and to learn something new. Nonetheless, the format of being able to meet like-minded people and to get the experts views and opinions without the struggle to find free time attracts attention.
The featured speaker Aleks Yenin is an accomplished IT consultant with 13+ years of experience, encompassing technology and business. Aleks has successfully delivered dozens of IT and Telecom projects of various scale and scope (SAS Institute, Mobile Telesystems, Sitronics, Orange, Nokia), creating ERP, CRM, Billing systems, etc. He is Principal Consultant at Polontech, IT consulting company and will be in Chicago for a couple of days.
Here at Polontech we are passionate about Agile and Jira and we would like you to join us at our meetup in Chicago on the 29th of August 2019. We are keen to talk to you about Jira Software in Agile projects and task management. But what stands behind it?
Does Jira mean anything new to you? I doubt it. To Polontech it is still a bit of Godzilla: powerful enough to remove the obstacles and move you forward to your destination.
Our goal is to go on exploring what it takes to create an environment where one can thrive on using true agile methodology. The Jira Software makes this an engaging experience. Simple UI makes any of the boards team-friendly.
By the utilization of Kanban or Scrum or next-gen project we harness the culture behind Agile methodology, which helps individuals to unite, providing great outcomes.
The potential risk of changes during your project can be evaluated, ensuring that there will be consistency in the final outcome. At Polontech we constantly collaborate with Attlassian and the world's top priorities for smart environments such as ITIL and ITSM.
Agile helps us to grow and scale it beautifully to achieve the “Optimal” result for a particular size and structure of organization. The big “Like” for us is SAFe (Scaled Agile Fraimwork). With the installation of Jira Software we design clever decisions, which support the organization at all levels.
If you only quantify one thing, quantify the “Cost of Delay!” We agree with this sentiment and in so doing, we start our planning and prioritizing, using WSJF. Some people might call it magic, but the calculation within a chosen model makes a plugin as an instrument of objective measurement.
Software development, from a business perspective on occasions is difficult to comprehend. We deal with issues that are complex and demanding for both the developers and the business teams. We encompass the perspective of all views. Therefore, we would really appreciate your attendance at our get together in Chicago on the 29th of August, at 6pm at the 1871, center for technology and entrepreneurship.
