Tagged is hosting a Meetup for the Bay Area Agile Leadership Network at our HQ on Tuesday, July 17, at 6:30 p.m. PT.
Pat Reed, Sr. Director of IT at Gap Inc. and Adjunct Professor at UC Berkeley and Woodbury University, and Walt Wyckoff, Agile SCRUM Master and QA Consultant at Stanford University, will be giving a presentation on “An Agile Accounting Model: The key to Enterprise Agile”.
About the talk:
“Before Agile can scale as the primary mode of developing software, an Agile accounting standard needs to be developed to enable CFO’s to understand and leverage one of the most quantifiable and compelling benefits of Agile software development. In this hands-on tutorial, we will walkthrough and de-mystify the problem, map current accounting standards to an Agile project accounting model and walk through a practical and defensible solution that participants can customize and implement.”
