This month at our evening meeting we will be hearing from another local exec who champions agile in his organization. Rony Lerner, VP of Engineering at Tripwire, will share how he stumbled upon Scrum and will argue that a top down approach is more effective than a bottom up approach to agile adoptions.

Don’t be shy. Bring your toughest questions and your management team. Rony can take it.
