Fresh off the transformation of an IT organization, Devon Morris will head this new venture by bringing his extensive background in helping companies to each class. Devon understands the challenges that arise during the transition to Agile development. Devon will train real world examples from day to day working with teams and facilitating business stakeholder collaboration, to identify their needs. He has trained over 1000 people and led Agile transformations in Fortune 200 companies. The techniques he has used to define the right process, and determine needed steps for each of those businesses, to implement processes successfully, will be available to each class.

BeardedEagle has taken the time to develop this course after working with multiple study groups to refine the materials over the past year.
