July 1, 2014 (Newswire) - Platinum Edge is pleased to announce that the company's Founder and CEO, Mark C. Layton, gave a presentation on Agile project management techniques to a class of MBA students at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Recognized as an authority on Agile project management, Mark was asked a variety of questions related to Agile methodologies and worked with the students to find effective solutions to their thoughtful inquiries. Some of the questions that were asked include the following:
• Change is hard—where do people tend to go wrong when they apply agile development?
• My company uses agile, and we do major combined projects that culminate in a hardware/software release. Is Agile a good fit for these large combined projects?
• Of the 12 Agile principles, which do you think is the most important and why?
Mark Layton is an expert on project/program management and an active coach on complex Agile implementations, and has used his experience to author the Agile Project Management for Dummies book as well as the new Scrum for Dummies book, which will be available in November 2014. The book can be pre-ordered on the Amazon website.
