Using Agile Values, Principles, and Practices to Deliver Customer Value


WWT Application Services will have a panel of presenters to discuss how agility is used to deliver valuable outcomes to customers.


World Wide Technology – Application Services specializes in application development, mobile computing, systems and sensor integration, enterprise architecture, and tactical collaboration. Our diverse client base includes commercial, non-profit, and government organizations. We’ve delivered solutions ranging from back-end government middleware to front-end applications and full-scale, commercial cloud infrastructures. In short, we connect people, sensors, information, and systems.


Our mission is to create high-impact software solutions through ongoing client collaboration, iterative development, and continuous testing that are better than could have been envisioned at project start.
We embrace agile values, principles, and practices and focus on outcomes versus outputs to deliver value.  Please join us as we will discuss how we use these agile methods to deliver technology solutions to customers quickly.

 

Our primary speaker, Rob Kurtz, is currently a Delivery Lead for World Wide Technology – Application Services providing a layer of best-practice project management around engaged agile teams of software and mobile application developers to deliver valuable outcomes to customers. 


Throughout Rob's 19-year career, he has had the pleasure to serve engineers, developers, and architects in both plan-driven and agile projects.  He is passionate about building strong teams and helping them grow so, together, they can achieve amazing results.  Over the years he has learned what it takes to build high-performing teams, both collocated and distributed, and worked in organizations resistant to project management practices.  Despite this, he has repeatedly delivered value.


Rob also recently completed a 4-year term as Vice President of Membership for the PMI Metro St. Louis chapter.  During his tenure, the chapter experienced unprecedented 22% membership growth and received PMI awards 3 years in a row.  He holds current PMP, PMI-ACP, Certified Scrum Master, and ITIL v3 certifications.  He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems and a Master’s degree in Information Technology Management.
