An Agile (R)Evolution - A Case Study in Review

NVISIA 100 E. Wisconsin Ave., 2nd Floor Conference Room , Milwaukee, WI (map)

A four-year journey from ancillary cost center to innovative strategic partner; “An Agile (R)Evolution” is a story about colleagues, a small business, and the challenge of evolving while supporting and at times, leading an organization through strategic change.  Inundated with development and support requests and in the wake of technical disaster that nearly cost the company everything, the IT Department at Health Payment Systems decides to embark down the path towards a more agile framework while sometimes dragging the rest of the organization along for the ride.

From the sometimes harrowing, and oftentimes amusing experiences along the way, the team learns what it means to work collaboratively with the entire company and help lead a business still in its formative stages.  This discussion will focus on what changes HPS made, and how those changes worked and ultimately impacted the business – the good, bad, and ugly.

About the Speaker:

Eric Beach is currently serving as the Director of Information Technology for Health Payment Systems.  He has been with HPS for almost 4 years, helping to lead the department and business through the steps it has taken to adopt scrum and recording its progress along the way.
