Past Events

  • Agile Service Management

    Both the Agile Methodology and IT Service Management have reached a high level of maturity in different streams. The first creates a vision of new ways of doing development; the second creates a vision of conservative workings to keep things running smoothly. So what happens when you mix the two together? Can we apply this new development / implementation methodology to a seemingly conservative approach to service provision?

    Join us to gain an understanding of how we can address a new way to implement a conservative tool.
