Technology Investment in an Agile Dev Environment

Robert W Baird & Co 777 East Wisconsin Avenue , Milwaukee, WI 53202 (map)

Join us on September 11th as we kick off our Fall meetings with Prescott Balch from US Bank.

Organizations which have taken a traditional approach to technology investment - lengthy planning, scope definition, cost and schedule assessment, ROI calculations - face a challenging transition in approach to investment in technology once they adopt agile development methodology. The larger the investments, the larger the discomfort with the uncertainties of the new approach.
