Downtown TLA Manager's Mtg 7/17

(This forum intended for employed TLA members able to leverage shared ideas and topics to help each other in their jobs. You don't need to be downtown but this location is convenient to those who are.)

Alison was all prepared to facilitate our Agile PMO discussion, only to be called to Jury Duty that day. However, she and I had been discussing another (happier) coincidence, that one of ThoughtWorks top experts in Agile PMO is giving a webinar the same week (Jul14, ses below). So here is what i'd like to try:

1. Please register for this webinar (link is below), and also RSVP to me whether you are coming to the Jul17 TLA Managers Forum.
2. Those of us who attended the webinar on Tuesday will drive the discussion on Friday: what was useful? what sounded suspicious? The rest of you join in withyour experiences and we'll take it from there. The result should be a richer experience than either the webinar or Forum alone, for everyone.

Here are the TLA Managers Forum details. Please let me know you're coming!

We are working to create a continuous stream of relevant webinars with a series of communications and resources behind them to stay in front of prospects and identify near term revenue opportunities.
