THE FRONTIER | 800 PARK OFFICES DRIVE, RTP, NC Aug 16 5:00 pm - Aug 16 7:30 pm

Agile is one of the buzzwords of the decade—we've heard that saying it in a sentence automatically springboards your business to the next level of efficiency! (Just kidding.)

But Agile does have its own vocabulary: scrum, sprints, story points, spike. And the methodology seems easy enough: dividing work up into small tasks and phases, leaving room for reassessment and adaptation throughout the process until completion. So how does one actually integrate this practice into their business's DNA?

At August's RTP180, you'll hear from Triangle experts who are using the principles of Agile in their day-to-day processes. They'll show that there is more to Agile than just software development—think healthcare, working environments, marketing, and beyond!

About RTP180
Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what the Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our three founding universities, Park companies, and the community at-large are called upon to take the stage to speak passionately about what matters to them. Doors open at 5:00pm for networking, beer & popcorn. Show kicks off at 6:00pm.
 
This year, we’ve chosen four themes for RTP180: Science, Human Communications & Interactions, Technology and Economic Development. Each of our monthly topics will fall under one of these themes.
