Aaron Kopel Presents 'Project Delivery with Kanban'
As organizations consider more Agile approaches, they often make the assumption that Scrum is synonymous with Agile. When they find that that certain roles and practices of Scrum may not be a fit for all circumstances, frustration ensues. A popular alternative framework and method for putting Agile and lean thinking into practice is Kanban.

2017 Is Off to a Roaring Start!
The early months of 2017 brought exciting meetings for your chapter. January's visit to the Fort Wayne Museum of Art was a big hit, which included some interesting project stories related to acquisitions for the museum collection, requiring out of the box thinking and agility in real time.
Speaking of agile, the hybrid live and telepresence presentations on Agile project management at Swiss Re attracted the highest attendance in memory for a dinner meeting.
Mark your calendars now for our chapter's 20-year celebration cookout event on May 24, 5-730 pm at Swiss Re, 1670 Magnavox Way. Special entertainment and a program is planned to celebrate reaching this milestone. Dinner includes burgers (including veggie), salad, soft drinks and beer. If you have special dietary requirements, please describe them in the reservation and we will try to accommodate. You are also welcome to bring your own meal to the event. First time visitors are welcome to attend as our guest to this event. More details will be forthcoming soon to this exciting evening.
