  • Working with geographically distributed teams
  • Whether they believe in following Scrum as prescribed
  • Their thoughts on some of the recent trends in Agile development

Our panel was hosted by Maeve Loughnane  – Portfolio Director at Version 1, and featured the following guest speakers:

The event was very interactive, as attendees used our live polling technology throughout the discussion to submit their questions, which were addressed during the Q & A segment of the session.
